The High Command of Military Zone 4 and the High Command of six Lao
provinces that share a border with the zone held a joint meeting to
evaluate their cooperation in the central province of Thua Thien-Hue on
May 28.

During the meeting, the two sides appreciated the
results achieved in various fields such as the propagation of the
governments’ policies and laws, the building of 14 primary schools and
five clinics in the area, the organisation of literacy classes for more
than 1,600 people and free health checks for 1,389 people.

In
addition, Vietnam and Laos worked together to find the remains of
749 Vietnamese voluntary soldiers and specialists who died on Lao
battlefields in the past.

Last year, border security-politics
saw positive changes, with smuggling, drug trafficking and illegal
migration reduced, living conditions of border area residents improved
and the bilateral relationship strengthened, contributing to a peaceful,
friendly and stable Vietnam-Laos border.

In the coming time,
the two sides will continue exchanging information particularly on
border security and politics, and enhance cooperation in gathering and
repatriating the remains of Vietnamese martyrs, coping with natural
disasters, and implementing the project of upgrading and building more
boundary markers along the shared border.-VNA
