The Joint Vietnam-Cambodia Committee on Land Border Marker Planting concluded a two-day meeting in Hanoi on August 28.

Leading the Vietnamese delegation to the Ad-hoc meeting was Vu Dung, Deputy Foreign Minister and Chairman of the National Border Committee.

The Cambodian delegation was led by Var Kim Hong, Senior Minister and President of the National Border Authority.

The two sides were satisfied at the progress made in the land border marker-planting process in the recent past and pledged to fulfill their 2008 targets. Priority for 2008 is given to determining marker locations and installing markers at border gates so as to boost border economies for the two countries.

The sides agreed on a number of measures to speed up planting border markers in reality as well as the process of reviewing and copying the graphic interfaces of remaining map pieces in an effort to finish mapping a complete borderline between the two countries as soon as possible. (VNA)
