Thais still open to joint plans

THAILAND is still open to pursuing bilateral projects with Cambodia, regardless of Prime Minister Hun Sen’s recent tirade against the neighbouring administration, acting Thai government spokesman Panitan Wattanayagorn said Tuesday.

Hun Sen on Monday called for Cambodian officials to review all bilateral agreements with Thailand and annul all Thai loans and grants, accusing Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva of insulting Cambodia.

Panitan would not comment directly on Hun Sen’s remarks, calling them an “internal” matter, but said Thailand has made no decisions about any agreements with Cambodia excluding the cancellation of a memorandum of understanding related to joint oil exploration that is pending in Thai parliament.

“We hope that we can go back to the beginning of the relations where there are no complications,” he said, referring to the rift caused by Cambodia’s appointment of convicted Thai former leader Thaksin Shinwatra as economic adviser.
