Surveyors to head to the border

Cambodia and Thailand have agreed verbally to allow a non-uniformed Indonesian military team to survey proposed sites for observers to monitor a ceasefire at the border, which saw violent clashes spark in February and last month.

A date for their assignment has not been set, Defence Minister Tea Banh said on Saturday upon his return from a meeting in Indonesia with his Thai counterpart Prawit Wongsuwon. Thai government spokesman
Panitan Wattanayagorn confirmed the deal, adding that there are four such proposed locations for observers in Thailand according to terms of reference that the Thai cabinet has “accepted in principle”.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Koy Kuong told The Post last month that Indonesian observers on the Cambodian side would be stationed in three villages in Preah Vihear province’s Kantuot commune of Choam Ksan district: Pram Makara, Ta Sem and Chak Chreng.
