Cambodian, Viet PMs to inaugurate border pillar over weekend

PHNOM PENH, June 21 (Xinhua) — Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen and his Vietnamese counterpart Nguyen Tan Dung will jointly preside over the inauguration ceremony of the Boundary Pillar No. 314 on June 24, the kingdom’s foreign ministry said in a press release Thursday.

The pillar is located at the terminus of the land boundary between Cambodia’s Kampot province and Vietnam’s Kien Giang province, said the press release.

“The inauguration is a part of joint activities to commemorate the 45th anniversary of the establishment of the diplomatic ties between Cambodia and Vietnam and the Cambodia-Vietnam Friendship Year 2012,” it said.

After the inauguration, the two prime ministers will also co- chair the third Cambodia-Vietnam Conference on the Investment Promotion, which will be held at Ha Tien, the capital city of Kien Giang province.

During the conference, the two premiers will witness the signing of the protocol on the amendment of an agreement on the promotion and protection of investment between governments of the two countries.

Cambodia shares 1,270-km-long border with Vietnam to the east. About 80 percent of the border demarcation has been completed so far and the two countries vowed to complete the remaining part by the end of this year.
