The prime minister says he will meet his Cambodian counterpart on the sideline of the UN General Assembly in New York to discuss key bilateral issues.
Prime minister Abhisit Vejjajiva said he will have a meeting with his Cambodian counterpart Hun Sen during their participation in the United Nations’s 65th General Assembly in New York to discuss the Phrea Vihear dispute and other issues.
Abhisit insisted his government still have the same stance of preserving and protecting the country’s sovereignty and the solution to the border dispute will rely on a peaceful basis to prevent violence and adverse affects on the two countries’s relations.
The prime minister said he will ask Cambodia to honor the agreements in the memorandum of understanding countersigned by the two countries in 2000 to settle their conflict over the area around the Phrea Vihear Temple.
Abhist also said related agencies have already examined the speculation on Cambodia’s disapproval of the Thai army’s planned renovation of Surin’s Ta Meon Thom Temple.
The site is also one of the disputed locations Thailand and Cambodia claim ownership.
Abhisit believed his meeting with the Cambodian leader will bring better understanding between the two countries.
