Border demarcations

After skepticism from Cambodian parliamentarians that demarcation of the borders

with Vietnam and Laos would be finished within allocated time, Border Commission

Director Var Kim Hong has announced to the National Assembly and local press that

work would be completed according to schedule, by the end of 2008. Hong said 350

demarcation poles would be in place along the 1,270-km Vietnamese border, costing

about $16 million. More than 100 poles will complete 86 percent of the 540-km border

with Laos.
