>PM discuss Preah Vihear dispute at Army HQ


(BangkokPost.com) – Prime Minister and Defence Minister Somchai Wongsawat (pictured) together with his entourage left the parliament and arrived at the Royal Thai Army Headquarters via a helicopter at around 3.10pm Tuesday.

The premier planned to discuss the disputed border around the ancient temple of Preah Vihear between Thailand and Cambodia with relevant units, including the Supreme Commander, Gen Songkitti Jaggabatara, the Commander-in-Chief of the Royal Thai Army, Gen Anupong Paochinda, and Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Affairs Minister Sompong Amornvivat.

It is expected that the top government and army officials would discuss the current political situation in the country after the police fired tear gas at the anti-government group in front of the parliament on Tuesday morning.

Mr Somchai is scheduled to visit Cambodia on October 13.
