Thailand, Cambodia to talk prisoner exchange

Thai Foreign Minister Sura-pong Tovichakchaikul will discuss a prisoner exchange with Cambodia when he visits for the ASEAN Summit, Chinese news agency Xinhua has reported him saying.

Thailand wants to take home nationals Veera Somkwamkid, the coordinator of the Thai Patriots Network, and his secretary, Ratree Pipattanapaiboon, who are serving lengthy sentences in Prey Sar prison.

Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman Koy Kuong said last week that Cambodia would consider the request.
