Cambodia, Vietnam sign Mekong agreement
Speaking after a meeting with Vietnamese Natural Resources Minister Nguyen Ming Quang in Phnom Penh Tuesday, he highlighted the importance of studying impacts on the Mekong.
Quang was quoted as saying that the two ministries would cooperate and "continue to talk about issues related to Mekong border countries to develop and maintain the quality of water for historical stability."
Financed by a Thai developer, the controversial Xayaburi dam would be the first across the mainstream of the Mekong River. Designed to produce energy mainly for Thailand, the project was suspended early 2012 following complaints from governments in other Mekong countries.
