Viet Nam, Laos and Cambodia have held a high-level meeting in Cambodia's Siem Reap Province to improve their joint work in combating the movement of drugs along their three borders.

Deputy Prime Minister and Chairman of the Cambodian National Authority for Combating Drugs (NACD) Ke Kim Yan, who chaired the Wednesday event, said the trilateral meeting, the 13th of its kind, reflected the three countries' friendship, as well as their determination to work closely in combating drugs.

He stressed each country's role in working to reach the goal of having a drug-free ASEAN by 2015.
