Counterparts to talk P Vihear

About 20 Cambodian border negotiators left for Thailand yesterday to iron out details of a settlement over the long-running Preah Vihear dispute at a meeting of the Joint Border Commission today and tomorrow.

Var Kimhong, head of  Bor­der Affairs at the Council of Min­­i­sters, is scheduled to meet his newly appointed Thai counter­part Bandhit Sotiplalit to discuss border demarcation issues.

Meanwhile, the National Auth­­­ority of Preah Vihear and the National Committee for World Heritage issued a statement yesterday expressing their “deepest concern” about Thai military activity inside the Provisional Demilitarised Zone, established by the International Court of Justice last July.
