Speaking during a weekly television programme, its first since the present government has come into power on September 25, Mr. Sompong said Mr. Hun Sen’s proposals were made to his Thai counterpart Somchai Wongsawat during the sidelines of the Seventh Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) ended in Beijing on Saturday.

Cambodian Prime Minister proposed that peaceful negotiations must be held between the two countries and future clashes must not occur again, problems must be solved through bilateral talks, the two counties must accelerate on peace talks under the framework of the joint border committee, and restore bilateral trade and investment, said Mr. Sompong.

Buoyed by Mr. Hun Sen’s remarks that peace is now seen at the Thai-Cambodian border as soldiers of the two countries posted there have exchanged food with each other, Mr. Sompong said he is confident that the conflict would be settled after last Friday’s initial agreement, reached by senior army officers of the two countries in the Cambodian province of Siem Reap, is forwarded to the Thai parliament this Tuesday for its consideration.

Latest border skirmishes occurred on October 15 when Thai and Cambodian soldiers exchanged gunfire near the ancient Preah Vihear temple in which a Thai and two Cambodians died and a number of troops from both sides wounded. (TNA)
