Hun Sen set to visit Laos, discuss border issues

Prime Minister Hun Sen will visit Laos in early December and potentially discuss border issues, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation undersecretary of state Tuot Panha said.

Hun Sen and Lao Prime Minister Thongloun Sisoulith previously agreed to designate the O’Tangav area as a no man’s land and increase joint patrols of Cambodian and Lao soldiers in the area.

This follows a confrontation in August last year.

Stung Treng province spokesperson Men Kong said border demarcation has not continued since then.
