Preah Vihear: ASEAN to send observers

No Comments

The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) will send monitors to the disputed border at Preah Vihear to assess the situation there. The sending of ASEAN monitors is seen as a compromise between Thailand’s and Cambodia’s differing stands on resolving the conflict; the former wants to resolve issues bilaterally while the latter is seeking the intervention of the UN. An unofficial ceasefire is currently in effect to prevent further bloodshed and damage to the ancient temple.
