PM wants the temple sign removed

Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva said in his
“Confidence in Thailand with PM Abhisit” weekly programme on NBT on
Sunday morning that he had ordered army chief to contact Cambodian
troops to remove the stone tablet, bearing the message “Thai troops
–the invaders” written in Khmer.
The stone tablet was erected in front of Wat Kaew Sikha Khiri Sawara
in the disputed 4.6 square-kilometer area near the Preah Vihear ancient
temple.
Mr Abhisit said there should be no problem for Cambodia to remove the temple sign.
He said he will make a national address on NBT at 8.30pm today to
explain the general public on the government and the armed forces
efforts to seek the release of seven Thais detained in Cambodian Jail.
The five Thais, freed by a Phnom Penh court, arrived at Suvarnabhumi airport yesterday.
The prime minister insisted that the government will continue trying
to help free Veera Somkwamkid, a coordinator of the network, who was
denied bail by the court and his secretary Ratree Pipatanapaibul, who
was given a bail and is now living at the Thai embassy.
