Cambodia has achieved remarkable progress with border demarcations with neighbouring countries, according to a secretary of state for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.

H.E. Ouch Borith shared the update during the ministry's annual recapitulative meeting to review the work achievements in 2017 and set forth new goals for 2018 yesterday here in Phnom Penh.

With Laos, the borderline of about 86 percent or 464.5 kilometres out of a total 540 kilometres has been demarcated with 121 posts.

Cambodia-Thailand Joint Border Committee, he continued, has located 70 of 73 border posts planted years back by the French colony and Siam (Thailand); and of the identified posts 44 have been officially accepted by the two countries, while the rest are pending further study.

About 84 percent of the border demarcation or 314 post planting has been completed with Vietnam, and the remaining work will be proceeded after a standard map is duplicated by French specialist to guide it shortly.

Situated in South East Asia, the Kingdom of Cambodia � with the land surface of 181,035 square kilometres � shared border lines with three countries, namely Laos, Thailand and Vietnam.
