Laos-Cambodia Border Issue Is Not Like What Going Viral On Social Media

Laos-Cambodia border issue is not like what going viral on social media which is groundless and intended to create misunderstandings between Laos and Cambodia, the Office of the National Boundary Committee, Ministry of Foreign Affairs said today.

The area is in normalcy. No confrontation, no tension, no big issue, no armed conflict and no unexpected incidence takes place, Mr Anousin Khattiyalath, Deputy Head of the Office of the National Boundary Committee, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, told a press conference in Vientiane today.

The fake news on Laos-Cambodia border that has been going viral on social media has forced the Office of the National Boundary Committee to host a press conference.

The groundless news on Laos-Cambodia border has not only created a situation to cause misunderstandings between the two countries, but also destroyed the good images of the two countries. Who are always good neighbours, have shared happy and sad times together, and respect the independence and sovereignty of each other, said Mr Anousin Khattiyalath.

As for settling the border issue between Laos and Cambodia, the two countries have stuck on peaceful means using negotiations to make the common border a border of peace, friendship, and cooperation, Mr Anousin added.
