Army to Sort Out Issue of Controversial Border Sign

The defense minister says the army chief is
now seeking a resolution over Cambodia’s sign at a temple on disputed
territory, labeling Thai troops as invaders of Cambodian territory.

Defense Minister General Prawit Wongsuwan stated Army Commander
in-Chief General Prayuth Chan-ocha is proceeding to resolve the problem
concerning the stone tablet at a temple on disputed territory, accusing
Thai troops of invading Cambodian soil.

Prawit said the matter is being addressed and there is nothing to worry about as it will be sorted out.

The minister also remarked the government is ready to oversee security
for the protests by every group, including those by the People’s
Alliance for Democracy ,or PAD, and its allies.

The PAD is set to stage a mass rally at the Makkawan Bridge tomorrow to
press for the nullification of the 2000 memorandum of understanding on
the Thai-Cambodian border demarcation and to show its opposition
against Cambodia’s recent arrest of seven Thais for alleged intrusion
of its territory.

Prwait said the government remains undecided on whether to implement
the Internal Security Act around the rally site, but suggested the
protest not be relocated.

He affirmed the authorities’ handling of the PAD’s gathering will be in compliance with the law.

He also insisted the campaigns by all protest groups are under watch of intelligence agencies.
