Phnom Penh – The Cambodian Ministry
of Defense (MoD) had dispatched tanks to the border in what seems due
to threat from Thailand.
A high-ranking official of the
MoD claimed on 28 Jan morning that a number of tanks and weapons will
be sent to the northern border this morning. This official added that
this is not a dispatch of military forces, but only a preparation for
the defense of territorial integrity in response to the irregular
situation taking place due to Thailand.
Other source claimed that
Cambodian troops along the border in Preah Vihear are on alert as it is
learned that there are suspicious Thai troop movements.
The changing situation comes at
a time when the Thai Yellow Shirts demand that Cambodia remove its flag
from Wat Keo Sekha Kiri Svarak, and also when Thai troops are being
reinforced in a number of areas.
