Leaders to meet again

PRIME Minister Hun Sen and his Thai counterpart Abhisit Vejjajiva will hold face-to-face talks for the fourth time this fall, on the sidelines of a regional summit in Cambodia next week.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Koy Kuong said the two would meet following two days of regional talks to be held November 16-17 at the new Peace Building in Phnom Penh.

Hun Sen met with Abhisit for the first time in nearly six months during the United States-ASEAN Summit in New York in September. They met again last month during international summits in Belgium and Hanoi.

The two also exchanged text messages to clarify allegations made by Thai security forces that Cambodia had provided safe haven for Thai antigovernment activists. Hun Sen said the accusations were
groundless.

Koy Kuong said the three meetings between the two premiers had  created “more confidence” in the two countries’ often prickly relationship, but was not aware of exactly what would be on the agenda during the upcoming talks.
