Thai defence minister backs Indonesia meet

ThaiDefence Minister Prawit Wongsuwon said he would attend a meeting with Cambodia next month in Indonesia, reversing his earlier stated opposition, The Bangkok Post reported yesterday. Prawit said he had “no problem” with the location so long as Indonesia was not involved in the talks at Bogor, slated for April 7 and 8. Cambodian officials reacted cooly yesterday. “We do not believe Thai officials’ comments because … they do differently from what they have promised,” said Nem Sowath, director-general of the general department of policy and foreign affairs at the Ministry of National Defense. “We don’t believe them until they send us a letter.” Cambodian and Thai officials will convene a meeting of the General Border Committee to discuss security issues in light of last month’s deadly clashes near the Preah Vihear temple.
