Cambodia and Thailand have renewed diplomatic goodwill yesterday with Cambodia inviting newly appointed Thai diplomats for a talk.

The spirit of cooperation that has flourished since Puea Thai Party leader Yingluck Shinawatra was elected prime minister last month continued yesterday with an official invite to visit Cambodia sent by Foreign Affairs Minister Hor Namhong to his Thai counterpart.

"As the start of our good collaboration, I would be very pleased if you could accept my invitation to pay an official visit to Cambodia at a convenient date in the near future," Hor Namhong wrote in his letter to Thai Foreign Affairs Minister Surapong Tovichakchaidul.

The letter states that Hor Namhong expects Cambodia and Thailand will reinvigorate the bonds of traditional friendship and fruitful cooperation among the two governments.

"I have full confidence that with our joint endeavor, Your Excellency and I will be able to fulfill the aspiration of our two peoples to live in harmony and shared prosperity," Hor Namhong wrote.

A day prior, new Thai defence minister Yutthasak Sasiprapa predicted a meeting between the two country's premiers, saying that it would probably pave the way for a resumption of the long stalled General Border Committee meetings.

Resolving the conflict would be a top priority, he reportedly said, while he vowed to make a trip to Thailand's Si Saket province to inspect contested border areas. Potential dinner plans were even outlined.

But Tea Banh said it was too early to talk about giving a green light to a border resolution, adding he would also send a letter of congratulation to his Thai counterpart.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
