The Yunnan section of the Sino-Vietnam land boundary demarcation project has ended with 665 boundary tablets erected, an official with the foreign affairs office of southwest China's Yunnan Province said in Kunming on Saturday.
During the past eight years, six Chinese teams cooperated with their Vietnamese counterparts and demarcated the borders of Jiangcheng, Jinping, Hekou, Maguan, Malipo and Funing.
All the land border demarcation work in the Yunnan area was completed on December 20, in accordance with the "Vietnam-China Land Border Treaty".
Large boundary tablets were established on Hekou's roads, rail terminal and harbor along the Yunnan section of the border.
The completion of the task represents a major step in Sino-Vietnamese relations.
China and Vietnam exchanged views on Wednesday on solving the remaining issues connected to border demarcation and erecting border markers, reached an agreement and issued a joint statement.
