PHNOM PENH, Aug. 4 (Xinhua) — Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen will address the National Assembly (NA) on border issues with Vietnam next Thursday, according to a NA’s press release Saturday.

The press release said that the National Assembly would hold its 8th plenary session of the 4th legislature on Aug. 9 under the presidency of Heng Samrin, NA’s president. One of the agendas in the upcoming session is a verbal clarification to the NA on border demarcation tasks between Cambodia and Vietnam.

The clarification is made at the request of Sam Rainsy Party, the country’s major opposition party.

Hun Sen said Wednesday that he would need four hours straight to explain the issues to the parliament.

The premier’s plan to appear at the National Assembly was unveiled after the opposition party had subsequently accused the current government of national betrayal for ceding land to Vietnam.

“It is serious and unacceptable that they call us ‘traitors’, so I need to explain these issues,” he told a graduation ceremony of more than 2,600 students at the Royal University of Law and Economics on Wednesday.

He said his upcoming remarks would be televised live in all local TVs if possible.

Cambodia shares a 1,270-km border with Vietnam to the east. To date, about 80 percent of the border demarcation has been completed and the two countries have vowed to fully complete it by the end of this year.
