BORDER clashes between Cambodia and Thailand will not prevent a Thai trade fair from taking place in Phnom Penh in May, the Thai ambassador said yesterday through a spokesman for Prime Minister Hun Sen.

Speaking on behalf of both Hun Sen and Thai ambassador Prasas Prasasvinitchai while they were in a meeting yesterday, Eang Sophallet told reporters the Prime Minister fully supported the upcoming trade fair and that he didn’t want the February clashes in Preah Vihear province to disrupt business.
