Thai Prime Minister Chuan Leekpai was given a letter by NGOs when he made his
first official visit to Cambodia on Jan. 12.
The NGO Forum, representing over 80 organizations, was behind the letter which outlined
points of concern such as environmental protection, the Khmer Rouge and the proliferation
of weapons, particularly land mines.
Other issues raised were the need for bilateral cooperation and the creation of a
permanent international tribune on war crimes. The NGOs praised Thailand's help to
Cambodia in dealing with refugees and helping the peace process.
