Cambodia not to Remove Its Flag on Pagoda: Cambodian PM

Hun Sen 5 Star General, The Prime Minister of Cambodia
Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen on Monday morning said at a university
in Phnom Penh that his country will not remove the Kingdom’s flag
flying over the Keo Sikha Kiri Svara pagoda, because it is in
Cambodia’s territory.

The relations between Thailand and
Cambodia had been strained recently over the territorial dispute as
Cambodia refused to remove its national flag from the front of Wat Keo
Sikha Kiri Svarak pagoda, which is located in the contentious areas of
4.6 square kilometers (1.8 square miles) around the Preah Vihear
temple.

The border between Thailand and Cambodia has never
been completely demarcated and the issue of ancient temple has been an
age-old dispute.

In the latest development, Cambodian and Thai
troops exchanged fire on early Monday at about 8:10 a.m. local time in
the region of Tasem near Preah Vihear temple, the world heritage.

It
is the fifth military clash between the two troops in four days. Both
sides used heavy weapons including rockets, machine guns, mortars and
artillery.
