ASEAN KEY DESTINATIONS
Cambodian-Vietnamese leaders meet
The talks came after an official welcome ceremony Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen held for his Vietnamese counterpart Nguyen Tan Dung on the latter's official visit to Cambodia.
The two PMs showed their satisfaction at the developments in the two countries' relationship and expressed their determination to bring cooperation to a new level.
They agreed to boost bilateral co-operation in trade, investment, banking, power energy, mining, oil and gas, industrial crops, and transport.
The PMs consented to encourage trade, services and cooperation between localities, especially in the shared border areas.
They also agreed to continue working together in the areas of security and defence and reinforcing co-operation in combating terrorist activities, trans-national crimes, smuggling, and drug and human trafficking.
They reaffirmed that they would not allow any hostile forces to undermine the countries' relationship by using one's territory to harm the other's security.
The two leaders expressed their resolve to speed up land border demarcation and border marker planting in order to finish the work before the end of 2012. In addition, they exchanged views on ways to promote co-operation in ASEAN and sub-regional co-operative mechanisms.
