The leaders of Cambodia and Thailand have reiterated their commitment to not allowing any group to use their respective territories to attack another country. 

The commitment was made between Prime Minister Hun Manet and his Thai counterpart Srettha Thavisin on February 7, during Manet’s one day visit to the neighboring Kingdom, according to a statement released by the government spokesperson unit.

“Both prime ministers openly emphasised their stance that under no circumstances will they allow any individual or group to use their territory to oppose the government of any other country,” the statement said.

Both prime ministers also agreed on other areas of cooperation, such as the opening of a Cambodian consulate in Thailand’s Songkhla province and a Thai consulate in Siem Reap province.

The Thai side also agreed to facilitate the return home of Cambodian migrant workers during the upcoming April Khmer New Year, as well as their return to work in Thailand.

Thailand employs more than 1.2 million Cambodian migrant workers. They usually return home in large numbers during traditional holidays, especially Khmer New Year and Pchum Ben.
