Officials from Cambodia and Laos agreed during a meeting in Siem Reap last week to speed up their joint border-demarcation process, a top border negotiator said Wednesday. Var Kimhong said Foreign Minister Hor Namhong and his Lao counterpart, Thongloun Sisolit, reached the agreement in talks that ended on Saturday. "We have resolved some issues, but other issues still remain, and we cannot speculate on when demarcation will be complete," Var Kimhong said. Cambodia and Laos share a 540-kilometre stretch of common border, and the two countries have already positioned 121 border markers of a proposed total of 140, Var Kimhong added. Koy Kuong, spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said that Cambodia and Laos have completed 86 percent of the border demarcation, and that technical teams from both countries are currently conducting additional surveys. "Cambodia and Laos support this process," he said. "Negotiations are going smoothly."
