Cambodian army commander Brig. Gen. Yim Pim told The Associated Press the fighting “has paused.”
He said commanders from both sides were trying to negotiate a cease-fire.
There were no casualties on the Cambodian side after the Wednesday gunfight between troops at a disputed border zone.
The fighting escalated a conflict that officials from both sides fear could result in a war between the neighbors.
The clash came a day after Cambodia’s prime minister issued an ultimatum to Thailand to pull back its soldiers from disputed territory near the 11th century Preah Vihear temple. – AP
