Thailand-Cambodia Border Dispute:
PMs agree to hold talks at Asean meeting in New York

Thailand's Prime Minister Somchai Wongsawat and his Cambodian counterpart Hun Sen are reported to have agreed to resolve the border dispute around Ta Kwai temple, reported Radio Australia on its website www.radioaustralia.net.au.

The prime ministers have reportedly decided to discuss the matter at the Asean Foreign Ministers Meeting in New York, on September the 29th. Thailand’s English-language daily Bangkok Post quoted a foreign ministry official in Bangkok as saying the premiers from the two countries held a telephone conversation recently and both agreed that the Thai-Cambodian border row can be solved through bilateral means.

The new development comes after Cambodia's prime minister accused Thailand of border intrusion into Ta Kwai last week.

The two countries made fresh accusations of violating each other's territory in the dispute over land near ancient temples along their border.

Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen has hinted in recent weeks that he might take his boundary complaints to the UN Security Council or international courts if the neighbours cannot resolve their border disagreement.

Tensions flared in July after Preah Vihear was awarded world heritage status by the UN cultural body Unesco, angering nationalists in Thailand who still claim ownership of the ancient Khmer temple.

Those tensions turned into a military standoff in which up to 1,000 Cambodian and Thai troops faced off for six weeks, until both sides agreed to pull back in mid-August.
