Locked in a war of words over the border dispute between their two governments, Cambodian and Thai journalists are organising a press junket to promote impartial reporting to be held for one day in the border town of Poipet in early October. "We want to see media on both sides talking to each other and trying to understand each other," Council of Ministers  spokesman Phay Siphan said, adding that he and other government officials would be involved in the forum but will not interfere with how it is run. Major Cambodia and Thai media are expected to attend.
