Thailand ‘ready to explain’ to UN

Panitan Wattanayagorn
Thailand is ready and willing to explain its
position in the border conflict with Cambodia to the United Nations
Security Council, government acting spokesman Panitan Wattanayagorn
said on Monday.
Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen has asked the UN to intervene in the Thai-Cambodian conflict.
Mr
Panitan said that Thailand had previously explained the situation with
Cambodia to the UN Security Council and would send additional
explanations to the council if Cambodia repeated its complaint.
Mr
Panitan said the agenda of the council depend on the decisions of its
permanent members and non-permanent members. All the members must agree
with the agenda first.
Thailand
has briefed its representatives. The council may reach a resolution,
but the process is complicated and  permanent member countries have the
right to veto a resolution.
“Mostly,
it considers situations without reaching a resolution. If some country
wants to get involved by deploying its forces, that would need approval
from the five  permanent member countries.
“For an issue to be discussed it must be seen as a serious issue.
“At
present, there are the issues in Egypt and Tunisia. The issue of
Thailand and Cambodia must follow the procedures. If there is a
complaint,  we are ready to explain. That is it,” Mr Panitan said.
