Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has approved the draft agreement between the Vietnamese and Cambodian Government on visa exemption for holders of general passport.

The Vietnamese Government’s website says the PM authorized the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to negotiate and sign the agreement with the Cambodian Government.

Reaching the agreement was among issues the two countries discussed during their fourth conference on cooperation and development between their border provinces in February this year. At the conference, the two sides agreed to launch as soon as possible negotiations for the signing of this agreement, and to upgrade existing border gates and set up new ones.
