Phnom Penh (FN), Feb. 13 – Cambodian prime minister Hun Sen said that Laos is a battery for the ASEAN region and Cambodia has a market demand for the Laos’ electricity.

The premier spoke during a joint press conference with Lao prime minister Sonexay Siphandone after the two sides concluded bilateral meeting.

“We have agreed on the connection between Champasak and Preah Vihear and between Attapeu and Ratanakiri, which is conducive to people-to-people ties," the premier said. “We also discussed the railway connection between Cambodia and Laos, and with other countries.”

Samdech continued, our discussions also covered the issues of tourism, in particular the land and air tourism as it can connect cities, especially Luang Prabang to Siem Reap and Phnom Penh. Such cooperation will make it easier for tourists to discover both countries.
