Thailand, Cambodia plan border meeting before June

Thailand and Cambodia have
agreed to hold the general border committee (GBC) meeting late this
month in order to strengthen cooperation on ensuring security for people
living along the border area.

The spokesperson of the Thai
Defence Ministry, Thanathip Saengsawang, has said that Defence
Ministers of Thailand and Cambodia are expected to attend the meeting,
which will take place earlier than the initial schedule of early June.
However, the decision on the meeting venue has not yet been made.

Earlier, Cambodian Defence Minister Tea Banh said that border dispute
settlement between the two countries has seen progress after talks
between him and his Thai counterpart, Prawit Wongsuwon on the sidelines
of the 5th ASEAN Defence Ministers Meeting in Jakarta, Indonesia.

As soon as the Indonesian survey team arrives at the border near
Preah Vihear temple, Cambodia will hold the GBC meeting with Thailand
bilaterally without Indonesian presence, Tea Banh said.

The Thai side demanded Indonesia to issue an announcement about the
dispatch of the survey team to the conflict border in proper time and
suggested that the dress as civilians.
