Mr. Virachai Plasai, Director-General of the Department of Treaties and Legal Affairs, on Tuesday met with Mr. Ouk Sophoin, Cambodian Charge d? Affairs to Thailand, at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and presented the latter with an Aide-Memoire regarding the fact on September 18, during which seven fully-armed Cambodian troops were deployed at the Trimuk Pavilion (Sala Trimuk), near the tri-junction point where Thailand, Cambodia and Laos? land boundaries meet.

According to he Aide-Memoire, Thailand expressed its concern over the unnecessary tension caused by such deployment of troops by Cambodia into boundary where is yet to be demarcated and still subject to tripartite negotiation among Thailand, Cambodia and Laos.

Thailand reiterated that Thailand has been committed to settle boundary issues with Cambodia fairly through peaceful means under the existing framework of the Thailand-Cambodia Joint Boundary Commission (JBC).

The Kingdom therefore requests Cambodia to promptly withdraw its troops out of the Trimuk Pavilion area and refrain from further deploying troops in the area in order to preserve goodwill and trust between the two countries pending completion of boundary demarcation.

In addition, the Director-General informed the Cambodian Charge d? Affairs to Thailand that today the cabinet approved the appointment of Mr. Vasin Teeravechyan, former Thai Ambassador to South Korea, as the new Chairman of the Thai-Cambodian Joint Commission on Demarcation for Land Boundary (JBC).

It was also expected that the House of Representatives would consider the negotiating framework on the provisional arrangement between Thailand and Cambodia and the negotiating framework of the Thailand-Cambodia Joint Boundary Commission (JBC) next week. (TNA)
