Moody swing Siam flipped the folly in border dispute

16 Jul 2012

SIEM REAP (Cambodia Herald) – Cambodia and Thailand have agreed to withdraw troops from around the Preah Vihear Temple and also reopen the temple’s border crossing.
The agreement came during a meeting between Prime Minister Hun Sen and Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra Friday which was also attended by defense ministers and military commanders.
“The troop withdrawal from Preah Vihear shows the wills of the two countries and the adoption of the International Court of Justice’s order,” Hun Sen said.
He said the two governments had also agreed to reopen the international border crossing at Preah Vihear as well as other crossings.
Cambodia is set to withdraw its troops on Wednesday while Thailand has not yet picked a date.
Cambodian Defense Minister Tea Banh told a joint news conference that Cambodia would pull back 485 troops, a move supported by Thai Defense Minister Sukampol Suwannathat.
