Drawing borders

King Norodom Sihamoni has signed the supplemental border treaty with Vietnam, the

final hurdle needed before the treaty becomes law.

The King wrote on his web site on November. 30 that he had been persuaded to sign

by Prime Minister Hun Sen, National Assembly President Prince Norodom Ranariddh and

Deputy Senate President Prince Sisowath Chivan Monirak.

Opposition leader Sam Rainsy wrote to the King from Paris on November 21 asking him

not put his signature on the supplemental border treaty - claiming that the treaty

was contrary to the 1991 Paris Agreement and violated the territorial integrity of

Cambodia.

Writing on his website, retired King Norodom Sihanouk said that King Sihamoni is

not responsible for the lost Cambodia territory, but the government and the National

Assembly have to be held accountable .

King Sihamoni said in a statement that the Royal Government and the National Assembly

for which people voted have the power and the responsibility to solve the border

issue with the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.
