Based on friendship and mutual understandings, the delegations have evaluated effects and cooperation potentials when opening a crossing-point in the 65th border mark area and agreed on certain contents. Accordingly, the crossing-point opening is necessary in creating favorable conditions for the people of the two countries to circulate and exchange, in order to enhance cooperation in socio-economic, culture, trade, and tourism development.

It also further promotes effective cooperation between the police and military forces of Dien Bien and Phongsaly in general, and forces in Nam Po district (Dien Bien province) and Muong Mai district (Phongsaly province) in particular in ensuring national security, social order, and safety of each party.

The crossing-point opening in the 65th border mark area aims to create favorable conditions for the deployment and coordination between border guard forces; contribute to building a border of peace and friendship, maintaining and promoting the relationship between the two countries.

At the end of the talk, two delegation leaders signed a memorandum of understanding on the agreed contents.
