PHNOM PENH - Opposition lawmakers were banned from asking questions of Prime Minister Hun Sen, who for the first time Thursday discussed his contentious border policies with Vietnam.

Opposition critics say Cambodia is ceding land to Vietnam, in a politically charged issue that ruling Cambodian People’s Party officials are reluctant to discuss openly.

Hun Sen told the assembled lawmakers that Cambodia had lost land under past leaders, in the 1960s, but that the country had lost no land under his watch.

He acknowledged that as a part of some agreements, that some parcels of land had been exchanged between both countries.

However, opposition lawmaker Son Chhay told reporters after the session that villagers along the border know whether they have lost land or not.
