Cambodia, Thailand to hold special meeting on border issues
Cambodia and Thailand will convene a special meeting of the Cambodian-Thai Joint Border Commission on Demarcation and Land Boundary (JBC) on Nov. 10 and 11, according to an official press release issued Sunday in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

It will be followed by the third meeting of both sides' foreign ministries to speed up the border demarcation work in a reasonable time limit, said the release from the Cambodian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.

Cambodia expects that, through these successive meetings, "both sides will be committed to achieve a peaceful and just solution tothe border problem as soon as possible without any further delay," it said.

The meetings will be held in accordance with the decision Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen and his Thai counterpart Somchai Wongsawat made in October during the Asem Summit in Beijing, it added.

In October, Cambodian and Thai troops exchanged fire on their disputed border area, killing two and wounding a dozen.

Prior to the clash, the ownership of the Preah Vihear Temple caused both sides to maintain military stalemate near the border for weeks.

During this period, rounds of meetings were held, but all failed to find common ground on the border issue to break the stand off.

The two countries share 790-km-long border line, but only with 73 border posts which were planted in 1907.
