Laos, Cambodia border dispute resolved

Lao soldiers have been ordered to withdraw from their shared border with Cambodia.

It comes after leaders of both countries reached an agreement today following a tense dispute revolving around military presence at the border.

Cambodia had accused Laos of illegally sending troops into its territory.

However urgent talks resulted in Lao Prime Minister Thongloun Sisoulith ordering his troops to pull out of the border area by tomorrow morning.
