Supreme Commander not concerned over negotiations on Ta Khwai TempleSeptember 18th, 2008 - 3:35 pm ICT by Amrit Rashmisrisethi
Supreme Commander Gen.Boonsrang Niempradit says he does not believe that the Thai-Cambodia dispute over border demarcation at Ta Khwai (ตาควาย) Temple will escalate like that of Preah Vihear.
The supreme commander says it is possible that the country’s political instability has prompted the neighboring country to claim rights over Ta Khwai Temple. He suggests that negotiations between the two countries will help ease the Thai-Cambodian row over the border line at the temple area.
Gen.Boonsrang says further that the best way to resolve the conflict is to strengthen the country and prevent social divisions. He also expresses his confidence that the Tha-Cambodian joint border committee and relevant officials can successfully negotiate on the matter.
