Officials from China and Laos held an unveiling ceremony of a new boundary tablet at the Mohan-Boten border crossing point Monday.

The ceremony, which was part of the two countries' first joint inspection of boundary, gathered Chinese Assistant Foreign Minister Liu Zhenmin and Hiem Phommachanh, deputy foreign minister of Laos.

The border areas of the crossing point connect Mohan in southwest China's Yunnan Province with Boten in Laos.

With the two sides' joint efforts, China and Laos enjoy a generally explicit and stable border, and boast robust border cooperation, Liu said when addressing the ceremony.

As this year marks the 50th anniversary of China-Laos diplomatic ties, China is willing to take this opportunity to enrich bilateral partnership of cooperation, with the hope of being a friendly neighbor with Laos forever, Liu said.

China-Laos borderline, which lasts 505 kilometers, was officially demarcated in 1993.

During this inspection, the two sides will check and confirm their borderline, and renew the boundary markers.

Chinese Ambassador to Laos Bu Jianguo, and more than 100 representatives from the two countries' relative departments and local governments also attended the ceremony.
