>Samak says any government would have had to endorse Cambodia’s Preah Vihear registration

>

Prime Minister Samak Sundaravej (pictured) said Sunday that any government would have had done the same thing with what his administration has done in endorsing Cambodia’s registration of Preah Vihear a world heritage site.

He said had the post-coup interim government remained in office, it would have done the same thing with what his government had done regarding the Preah Vihear listing.

Speaking during his live talk programme, Samak said had the Democrat won the election, it would have also done the same thing.

He said Cambodia would seek to register Preah Vihear with or without Thai endorsement and it could have caused more damages had the World Heritage Committee approved the registration of the disputed overlapping land as part of the world heritage site.

The prime minster said his government endorsed the registration after Cambodia agreed to register only the temple not the surrounding landscape.

    >Preah Vihear Temple will always belong to Cambodia as far as the ICJ’s decision in 1962, and the inscription of the Temple as World Heritage List is surely another severe blow to Thailand and its people.The current Thai administration is under scrutinies from others [parties within the current government and opposition] purely by politicizing Preah Vihear issue and to create nationalist’s motions and tension but the main core and real intention of all are rather scary – to oust the legitimated, democratic elected government of just 6 months old who are thought and claimed to be too friendly to the former ousted PM Thaksin.mediawatch
