Vietnam – Laos border markers completed

Vietnam: The completion of a project to upgrade and increase the number of border markers along the Viet Nam-Laos border will help to create a border of peace and friendly co-operation for the mutual development and interests of both peoples.

This was agreed by Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh and Laos' Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Thongloun Sisoulith, at a meeting to review the project today.

Minh said there was a lot more work to be done so that the entire project is completed in 2014.

He suggested that both parties keep working closely together to draw up and sign legal documents relevant to border issues.

These include the Protocol on Border Demarcation and Marker Planting, the new Agreement on Border Management Regulations and the Vietnam – Laos Border Gates and Border Gate Management Regulations in order to satisfy border management requirements in the new situation.

He also highly appreciated the efforts made by the joint committee's of both countries on planting border markers, especially those directly involved in field border marker planting.

Laos's Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Thongloun Sisoulith stated that this outcome was a joint victory for both countries and played a key role in politics, national defence, security and economic development.

Vietnam and Laos share a 2,000km border running from north to south. This is the longest land border that Vietnam shares with a neighbouring country.
