State sends notes on Thai, Lao shootings

THE Ministry of Foreign Affairs sent diplomatic notes to Thailand and Laos yesterday, relating to the recent shootings of three Cambodians this month, which they said “abused the brotherhood” between the Kingdom and its neighbours. Foreign Ministry spokesman Koy Kuong said one note was sent to Laos on Friday after Than Sarat, a villager from Stung Treng province’s Siem Pang district, was shot dead by a Laotian soldier on December 22 while entering the jungle for fruit. The note to Thailand was dispatched in response to the shooting and killing of two Cambodian loggers by Thai soldiers on December 20.
