Cambodia’s Prime Minister Hun Manet recently hosted Thai Defence Minister Sutin Klungsang to discuss border trade, demining activities, investment, and tourism, emphasizing peace along their shared border.

The initiative is critical for clearing mines from the border area and underscores the commitment of both nations to regional peace.

Officials said the gathering highlights a new phase in Thailand-Cambodia relations, centering on mine removal, joint military efforts, and the well-being of migrant workers, all crucial for the region’s stability and development. (NNT)
