Vietnam-Cambodia border topographic maps to be sent to UN

Cambodian border affairs committee chairman Var Kimhong said the government will send newly-drawn Vietnam-Cambodia border topographic maps to the UN for international recognition.

Speaking at the ceremony to hand over the maps to 35 Cambodian ministries and state institutions at the Peace Palace, Phnom Penh on August 27, Var Kimhong considered the border topographic maps scaled at 1:25,000 as a “historic achievement” for Cambodia.

“We plan to send the topographic maps to be kept at the United Nations,” he was quoted by Khmer Times as saying, adding that the Cambodian government will negotiate with Vietnam to demarcate the remaining 16 percent of the border.
