Thaksin (right) has a special relationship with Hun Sen (left) when he was Thai PM and used to play golf together.
(BangkokPost.com) – Pongthep Thepkanchana, spokesman of ex-premier Thaksin Shinawatra, dismissed accusation that Mr Thaksin is behind a so-called plan to trade off land below Phreah Vihear for oil and gas concession.
The government has denied there is any such plan, and has vowed never to yield “one square inch” of Thai border territory to Cambodia, especially around the Cambodian temple.
Mr Pongthep said the disputes over the Phreah Vihear has been unsettled a long time ago.
He insisted that the Thai government will have to protect the benefit of the country, and such accusations are not true.
He refused to answer questions about Mr Thaksin’s reported plan to build a casino and entertainment complex on the main island off the Cambodian province of Koh Kong, just south of Trat, saying he knows nothing about it.
