Thai Defence Minister Prawit Wongsuwan arrived in Siem Reap on Tuesday for annual talks with his Cambodian counterpart, Tea Banh.

"The secretariat is preparing the documents for Tuesday's talk," said an official from the ministry who did not want to be named. "Today, top officials for the meeting are playing golf."
