Temple remains closed

COUNCIL of Ministers spokesman Phay Siphan said yesterday that it was “too early” to discuss reopening Preah Vihear temple to tourists with Thai officials, as the two nations had yet to comply with an International Court of Justice ruling to establish a demilitarised zone in the area. “It is a second priority,” he said. According to the Bangkok Post  Somsak Suwansucharit, governor of Thailand’s Sisaket province, said he planned to approach Cambodian officials to discuss the issue. On July 18, the ICJ ordered that Cambodia and Thailand withdraw military personnel stationed near the temple and allow Indonesian observers to monitor a ceasefire.
