The United Nations Secretary General Mr. Ki-moon suggested that the border disputes between Thailand and Cambodia should be settled bilaterally, Foreign Minister Mr. Sompong Amornwiwat said on Monday.

The UN chief, Mr. Ki-moon, told ministers of both Thailand and Cambodia to settle the border disputes bilaterally while they, together with other colleagues from Asean, met with him on the sideline of the UN General Assembly in New York.

Thailand-Cambodia border conflict was among the issues including the Myanma’s rehabilitation after cyclone Nargis discussed between the Asean ministers and Secretary General Ban.

The border conflict came into the UN attention as Phnom Penh wanted to bring the issue to the UN Security Council since July. It was put on hold since both sides have many bilateral mechanisms to handle such conflict.
