Cambodia, Thailand to resume border talks next month

PHNOM PENH, Jan. 18 (Xinhua) — Officials of the Cambodian-Thai Joint Commission on Demarcation of Land Boundary will meet in Thailand on Feb. 13-14 to discuss border demarcation, Cambodian Foreign Ministry said in a press release Wednesday.

Var Kimhong, Cambodia’s senior minister in charge of border affairs, and Long Visalo, secretary of state at the ministry of foreign affairs, will lead Cambodian officials for the upcoming meeting to be held at Thailand’s request.

“The meeting will discuss boundary measurement and search for remaining 25 border poles outside the area of Preah Vihear temple because, at the area of Preah Vihear temple, both sides have to wait until the International Court of Justice interprets the judgment of 1962 on the case concerning the temple of Preah Vihear temple,” it said.

Cambodia and Thailand have had sporadic border conflicts over territorial dispute near Cambodia’s Preah Vihear temple since the UNESCO listed the temple as a World Heritage Site on July 7, 2008. The two countries were locked in fierce border fighting in February and April during the Thai’s Democrat-led administration.

Tension has eased since former Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra’s Pheu Thai Party won a landslide victory in the general elections on July 3.
