Fruitless talks over the Preah Vihear border

No Comments

What’s in a name? Recent talks between Thailand and Cambodia over the disputed border around Preah Vihear came to a fruitless end as both sides couldn’t agree on basic names, such as the temple itself (Cambodia calls it Preah Vihear, Thailand wants it called Preah Vihear/Prah Viharn) or even the formal name of the joint patrol teams. Talks rescheduled until April.
