A brief tense between Cambodia and
Thai troops near Preah Vihear Temple was finally eased and returned to
normal, military sources at the border said Wednesday.
The sources said over telephone that some 30 Thai soldiers in black uniform came close to Keo Sikhakiri Svarak Pagoda near Preah Vihear Temple on Wednesday morning at which they were asked to return to their previous position by Cambodian troops.
According to the sources, the Thai troops were demanding a stone sign that says “Here Is Cambodia” to be removed from
a site near the Pagoda where 20 Thai soldiers used to stay during the
tense border conflict after Cambodia’s Preah Vihear Temple was
registered as a World Heritage Site in July 2008.
The stone sign, however, was removed and the Thai soldiers also returned to their previous line after lunch time on Wednesday.
Since 2008, Cambodia and Thai
troops have exchanged several rounds of military clashes that resulted
in several dead and injured.
