Preah Vihear case: Indonesian ambassador offers help

Indonesia has vowed to assist both Cambodia and Thailand in implementing the International Court of Justice’s decision over the case of Preah Vihear temple, renewing its years-old involvement in mediating the dispute between the two nations.

Outgoing Indonesian ambassador to Phnom Penh Soehardjono Sastromihardjo made the pledge during a meeting with Foreign Minister Hor Namhong yesterday, Koy Kuong, spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said.

“Indonesia is ready to assist in whatever means if both countries ask for its support in implementing the ICJ order,” Kuong quoted Soehardjono as saying.

According to Kuong, Namhong also thanked Indonesia for its mediation of ceasefires between Cambodia and Thailand in 2010 and 2011.

Due to internal unrest in Thailand, neither it nor Cambodia has decided on how to implement the ICJ’s Novermber verdict – which granted Cambodia ownership of the promontory where the temple is situated.

“It is just a matter of time, but the implementation of this order is not an issue,” Kuong said yesterday.
