Thai Parliament approves framework for talks

A joint meeting of the Thai lower and upper houses approved the proposed framework late Tuesday giving the joint boundary commission (JBC) a mandate to negotiate with Cambodia on the border dispute between the neighbours, reported government news agencies TNA.

The joint parliamentary session endorsed the framework eight hours after a closed door debate. Parliament's endorsement is required under the Thai constitution on talks affecting sovereignty.

Opposition Democrat Party members of the House, as well as some Senators, expressed concern over the map to be used for the talks.

They cited differences between the map as prepared under the convention between Siam and the Indochina demarcation committees since 1904 and the present map of Thailand.

They argued that Thailand would be at a disadvantage if the former version is used in the talks. However, they finally endorsed it after the map in question was withdrawn.
