20 August 2015
Having reviewed a number of map’s from the UN, Cambodian officials announced Thursday that the map Cambodia currently uses for border demarcation and negotiation is legitimate. The new claim casts doubt on accusations from critics that the government is using outdated maps that make it easier for Vietnam to encroach on Cambodian territory. Var Kimhong, head of the Cambodian Border Committee, said he had reviewed 18 maps, one by one, which show “the map being used for border demarcation with Vietnam is the same.” He called for an end to false claims about other maps that might be used and for critics to “let the border committee work freely.” VOA Khmer's Neou Vannarin has the report from Phnom Penh,Cambodia.
