The supreme courts of Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia have agreed to strengthen bonds in the combat against criminals and the settlement of trans-border civil cases.
In a joint statement issued at their fifth conference of border provinces’ courts which took place in Phnom Penh, Cambodian on December 14-15, they were unanimous that in the context of more complicated and unpredictable global developments such as terrorism and territorial disputes, cooperation among the three supreme courts and courts in the border localities has had an increasing role in maintaining regional security and stability.
The three supreme courts reached consensus on strategies and multilateral cooperation mechanisms. Accordingly, they will enhance experience exchange in trial of civil and criminal cases, as well as collaboration in the fight against trafficking of drugs, human and wildlife animals.
