First Secretary to the Thai Ambassador in Phnom Penh Chaturont Chaiykam (จตุรงค์ ไชยะคำ) revealed yesterday that the bilateral meeting between Thailand and Cambodia to remedy conflicts over the Phear Vihear National Park registration went into informal talks for over 6 hours while awaiting an official statement from new Foreign Affairs Minister Tej Bunnag (เตช บุนนาค).

Mr. Chaturont stated that the talks took a pause during the earlier afternoon as Mr. Tej called on his team for an aside. Most reports pointed to border issues as the main reasons for extended talks.
