Vietnamese and Lao border guards in Quảng Trị and Savannakhet on Monday afternoon discovered Lăm Phon, 42, and Thong Xay, 34, carrying the drugs and attempting to enter Việt Nam on a truck with a Lao registration plate.

Vietnamese border guards and an anti-drug trade unit are working with Lao counterparts to return the men and drugs to the Lao side for further investigation.

This is the second successful case thanks to collaboration between Vietnamese and Lao counterparts to combat the illegal drug trade in the border areas.

Earlier last week, the joint force intercepted 114,000 drug tablets near Lao Bảo Border Gate.
