Leaders of the two sides sign a Memorandum of Understanding
to mark co-operation moving into 2021.

The MoU will see Kien Giang’s provincial border guards provide a sum of VND70 million to police in Kampot province in order to build barracks and combat the potential spread of the COVID-19 epidemic.

Both sides have promptly inform each other about all ongoing situations relating to activities and the COVID-19 epidemic in border areas, thereby co-operation involves calling on local people to strictly follow the Governments’ direction regarding epidemic prevention and control.

They have moved to strengthen the inspection of border gates, whilst also tightening the management of trails and open crossings, as well as organising quarantine work in line with relevant regulations.

Moving forward, the two sides will continue to intensify patrols and regularly control key areas and trails and provide information relating to COVID-19 to raise awareness about the strict implementation of measures aimed at preventing the spread of COVID-19.

Upon detecting violations in border areas or activities of illegal fishing, both sides must notify the nearest units of each other in order to handle the problem in accordance with international law.
