He made this comment at a road inauguration ceremony in Memot town, Kampong Cham province, thanking the king for his signature, an act of ending suspicion and controversy about the border issues. He said the border has never been clearly marked, and there was no plan.

The Prime Minister also thanked Mr. Chea Sim, Senate's president, and Prince Ranaridh, National Assembly's president, and said that as prime ministe, he pledges to do everything legally in his power dealing with the border issue including exchanging signed documents, demarcation, and discussion on remaining points.

The opposition Sam Rainsy party (SRP) Thursday said that Mr. Sam Rainsy is very concerned about Cambodia losing her territory and interests. SRP appeals to the people to join it so it can review the treaty when it can win the election in 2008.

King Sihamoni defended his dicision in signing the treaty saying it is for security and peace in the Khmer societies, and that Prime Minister Hun Sen, Prince Ranaridh, and Mr. Sok An, Minister in charge of the Council of Ministers assured him that Cambodia will not lose her territory.
