Cambodia requests Thais to fully open border checkpoint

Cambodia has called on Thailand to fully open the temporary Stung Bot-Ban Nong Ian International Checkpoint in Banteay Meanchey province, Ministry of Public Works and Transport spokesman Vasim Sorya told The Post on Tuesday.

At full operation, the checkpoint will facilitate the shipment of goods as Poipet International Checkpoint cannot meet the current demand, Sorya said.

He said the Kingdom raised the proposal during a Monday meeting between General Department of Public Works director-general Heng Rathpiseth and Thai Department of Highways deputy director-general for engineering Apichart Juntarasup.
