Cambodian-Thai bosses meet for border talks

About 20 senior government leaders met with Thai officials yesterday in Phnom Penh to discuss border issues, includ­ing combating human and drug trafficking and illegal logging, officials said.

Ministry of Interior Secretary of State Sak Setha said that the closed-door meeting included prov­in­cial governors along the Cam­bodian-Thai border.

“We have discussed many issues, such as border-crossing check­points, trade, strengthening ties between the provincial governors of both countries,” Sak Setha said.

The group also broached the topic of Cambod­ian log­gers being shot at by Thai soldiers, he added.
