Border Committee President Discusses Cambodian Oil on 'Hello VOA'

Seng Pengse, the president of the Cambodian Border Committee, which was formed to help Cambodia tackle economic and border issues, addressed listeners live Thursday on "Hello VOA" to discuss Cambodia's recent oil discovery.

Three callers used the forum to discuss concerns over sea borders with Vietnam and Thailand and the sharing of oil revenues between the three countries.

Seng Pengse said there first must be resolution and then drilling. No other country in the world is sharing its product like Cambodia, he said.

He said that while Cambodia has lost territory in border demarcations, the borders will never be as they once were. He said a border agreement with Vietnam in October 2005 was a loss for the nation.
