>Border talks to resume Thursday


Gen. Wiboonsak (R) held talks with Gen. Chea Mon (L) on the border on 16th October.

(BangkokPost.com) – The Second Army commander, Lt-Gen Wiboonsak Neeparn, insisted he will resume negotiations with the Cambodia’s Fourth Army chief, Gen Chea Mon, to seek peaceful solutions to the Thai-Cambodian border dispute near Preah Vihear temple on Thursday and Friday.

Previously, the meeting was scheduled to be held Tuesday in Siem Reap, but Cambodia on Sunday postponed it, according to Thailand’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

However, Lt-Gen Wiboonsak believed the bilateral talks this week could work out some problems between both countries, such as reducing the number of troops from each side.

On Monday morning, the situation at the Thai-Cambodian border was less tense after both sides agreed to conduct joint border patrols.

Meanwhile, one of the seven injured Thai troops was still in a worrying condition, following the brief armed confrontation last Wednesday.
