Cambodian representatives will be meeting their Thai counterparts to talk about the ongoing dispute over submitting the temple as a UNESCO World Heritage site. While the International Court of Justice has ruled that the temple belongs to Cambodia, the undefined border in the surrounding region remains the source of contention between the two nations.
The Nation Multimedia, 21 February 2008
A senior Thai Army officer has suggested the two countries should jointly propose the listing of the historical site to Unesco as Thailand may lose its land, which has yet to be demarcated, if Cambodia made the proposal alone.
Noppadon said Saturday he had discussed the issue with his Khmer counterpart Hor Nam Hong on the sidelines of the Asean retreat meeting in Singapore on Tuesday.
