PM calls for border calm

PRIME Minister Hun Sen has ordered troops stationed along the border with Thailand to remain calm while a new Thai government is formed.

Hun Sen “has called on army commanders and troops stationed along the Cambodian-Thai border to be careful and remain calm at their respective bases, and to avoid any acts that may be considered as provocative”, the Council of Ministers said in a statement on Friday.

Meanwhile, the ICJ, a United Nations court charged with settling legal disputes between states, said in a statement on Friday that it would issue a ruling on preliminary requests made by the Cambodian government related to disputed territory near the Preah Vihear temple on July 18.

Cambodia has requested the court to order a withdrawal of all Thai forces from Cambodian territory near the 11th Century temple, ban Thai military activity in the area and order Thailand to refrain from any act that would interfere with Cambodian rights or aggravate the dispute.
