Verdict on Preah Vihear Temple now on November 11

October 26, 2013 Destination ASEAN, Headline News No Comments Email Email

egtmedia59According to Bangkok’s The Nation newspaper, Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra yesterday pledged to co-operate with Cambodia to keep the peace along the Thailand-Cambodia border whatever the ruling handed down by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in the upcoming PreahVihear Temple territorial-dispute case.
The International Court of Justice (ICJ) is now scheduled to deliver its ruling on November 11, after Cambodia asked the court in April 2011 to interpret its 1962 verdict to clarify which areas around the temple came under Cambodian sovereignty. PM Yingluck said both Thailand andCambodia wanted to see the area remain peaceful.

General Nipat Thonglek, Permanent Secretary for the Defence Ministry, said PM Yingluck, in her capacity as Defence Minister, would not be expected to travel to The Hague to hear the ruling.

General Nipat said Yingluck would chair a meeting of the concerned government agencies on October 21 to discuss how to maintain law and order along the border on the day of the ICJ ruling.
