Both sides will also review development cooperation activities in the border areas and charter directions to further improve the effectiveness of coordination in management of the borderline, contributing to strengthening the comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership between the two neighbors.

The Viet Nam-China Treaty of Land Border was signed by Vietnamese Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Nguyen Manh Cam and Chinese Foreign Minister Tang Jiaxuan in Ha Noi on December 31, 1999.

The two countries signed the three legal documents, namely the Protocol on border demarcation and marker planting, the Agreement on border management regulations, and the Agreement on border gates and land border gate management regulations, in Beijing on November 18, 2009./.
