In Brief: US to stay 'NEUTRAL' on border dispute

The United States will remain neutral in the border dispute between Cambodia and Thailand, a US State Department official told a group of local students Tuesday. "We know there is an issue over the border between these two countries, and we have told the Thais and we have told [Cambodia] that... both sides should meet to talk about it and to try and solve it peacefully," Stephen Blake, director of the State Department's Office of Mainland Southeast Asia, said Tuesday. Blake was answering students' questions at the Cambodian Royal Academy's Institute of International Relations as part of his three-day visit to Cambodia.
