Border Talks: Commanders meet near Preah Vihear

Border Talks
Royal Cambodian Armed Forces General Srey Doek met with his Thai counterparts on Wednesday near Preah Vihear temple, RCAF Brigade 8 commander Yim Phim said. The two were scheduled to discuss disagreement over the positioning of Cambodian troops in the Phnom Trop area near the temple. Yim Phim said he had yet to receive details of the meeting. Thai Army deputy spokesman Veerachon Sukondhadhpatipak said commanders from the two armies will meet again on Friday in Oddar Meanchey province “to foster good relations between the two commanders who are responsible for the situation along the border”. “They will talk about how to prevent people from both countries illegally entering across the border from each country,” Veerachon said. Since September, seven Cambodians have been killed by Thai troops while logging in Thailand, Cambodian officials say.
