My visit no bearing on Cambodian ties: Suthep

Deputy Prime Minister Suthep Thaugsuban insisted on Wednesday his
inspection trip to Si Sa Ket province had no bearing on the
Thai-Cambodian relations.

He was speaking before departing for Si Sa Ket, which is adjacent to Cambodia.
“My trip is about a reafforestation project in honour of His
Majesty,” he said. He denied any linkage to today’s Cambodian judicial
inquiry on additional espionage charges against two of seven detained
Thais in Phnom Penh.
Accompanied by Army chief General Prayuth Chan-ocha, Suthep
said he wanted to thank soldiers and participants for reafforestation
in Kanthararak district.
When asked about the detained Thais, he said the government had
already assigned the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to be the primary
agency in charge of assisting in the legal defence and commenting on
related issues.
He said, however, that he understands the Cambodian court is expected to rule on the case within this week.
He reaffirmed good neighbourly ties with Cambodia in every aspect.
