Prawit: Troop deployments not a worry

Prawit Wongsuwan, Thai Minister of Defence.
Fresh deployments of Cambodian troops and
armour along border areas adjoining Si Sak Ket province are not cause
for worry, Defence Minister Prawit Wongsuwon said on Monday.
Gen Prawit said Cambodian troops might be on routine defence
exercises. Thai solders are also on full alert, ready to protect the
country’s sovereignty.
Troops of both countries were doing their duty on both sides of the border, and there should not be any problem, he said.
“I believe there are no serious problems on the Thai-Cambodian border.
“The Foreign Ministry should be able settle the dispute through talks.
“Thailand and Cambodia are not involved in a serious conflict that could trigger a war,” Gen Prawit said.
He said the flag the Cambodians put up at the entrance to the old
Kaew Sikha Khiri Sawara temple in the disputed 4.6-square-kilometre
area near Preah Vihear temple was actually a temple flag, and it was
only a small flag.
Gen Prawit denied suggestions that Cambodian had was taking an aggressive stance towards Thailand.
Cambodian authorities had showed they were willing to cooperate
by removing the insulting stone tablet in front of Wat Kaew Sikha Khiri
Sawara, he said.
