Temple ‘encroachment’

The Cambodian Foreign Ministry had sent a diplomatic note to the Thai government alleging Thai military encroachment in the Provisional Demilitarised Zone around the Preah Vihear temple, Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman Koy Koung said yesterday.

“We sent the diplomatic note via the Thai embassy in Phnom Penh on February 8,” Koy Kuong said.

The Thai military had transported construction materials into the zone around the area of Phnom Trop on January 24 and 25, he added.

Men Sophea, a soldier based at Phnom Trop, said Thai troops had transported construction material for building a bunker and placed a Buddhist statue in front of Phnom Trop.
