Airspace talks planned

THIRTY top officials from the Royal Thai Air Force are to pay a one-day visit to Phnom Penh on September 14 for discussions with their Cambodian counterparts about cooperation, training and "maintaining mutual respect for airspace sovereignty", Defence Ministry spokesman Chhum Socheat told the Post Thursday.

The meeting comes a month after the head of Thailand's Chanthaburi-Trat base apologised to the Cambodian government for violating Cambodia's airspace in Pursat province.

Chhum Socheat said Thai Air Force Chief Marshal Itthaporn Subhawong and his subordinates would meet with Defence Minister Tea Banh, Royal Cambodian Armed Forces (RCAF) Commander in Chief Pol Saroeun and Soeung Samnang, commander of the Royal Cambodian Air Force.
He said the visit was part of a broader effort to improve military cooperation between the two countries.
