Cambodia, Laos Agree to Withdraw Troops from Border after Tensions

BANGKOK – The governments of Cambodia and Laos agreed on Saturday to withdraw their troops from the border between the two countries after Cambodia had accused Laotian troops of encroaching on its territory.

Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen traveled to the Laotian capital Vientiane to meet with his counterpart Thongloun Sisoulith on Saturday to diffuse tensions surrounding the presence of Laos troops in Steung Treng province on the border between the two neighbors.

“The Lao side has agreed to withdraw troops from Cambodian territory (on Sunday), and Cambodian troops (...) will also return” with immediate effect, according to a statement on Hun Sen’s official Facebook page.

Cambodian troops were seen riding through the capital Phnom Penh in armored military vehicles to reinforce defenses at the border.

Phnom Penh on Friday had issued an ultimatum for the 30 troops, who have been there since April, to leave by Aug. 17.
