Thai Prime Minster Abhisit Vejjajiva is convinced that the 3rd meeting with his Cambodian counterpart will see more positive approaches to narrow the gap of differences on border issues between Cambodia and Thailand, according to H.E Mr. Khieu Kanharith, Minister at the Ministry of Information when speaking to TVK and AKP reporters upon his arrival from Bangkok at Phnom Penh International Airport last night.
"He (Abhisit) hopes to achieve more positive outcomes at the meeting scheduled later this month in Hanoi with Samdech Techo Hun Sen, Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Cambodia", said the Minister who just ended his four-day working visit to Thailand, the followup on constructive talks between Cambodia and Thai premiers in New York and Brussels.
Samdech Techo Hun Sen met with Thai premier Abhisit Vejjajiva at a summit in Belgium, where the two leaders affirmed their commitment to a demobilization of troops stationed along their contentious border.
For further talks aimed at resolving the border dispute the two premiers are slated to meet again later this month at an ASEAN meeting in Hanoi.
The two militaries from both sides have good cooperation, and we shared lunch and ate cakes together recently.(ends)
