    Thai, Cambodian officials hold peace talks

    Post by naughtypaola on Thu Oct 16, 2008 1:52 pm

    PREAH VIHEAR, Cambodia - Thai and Cambodian troops faced off at a disputed border as military officials held urgent
    peace talks Thursday, a day after a deadly gunbattle near an 11th-century temple sparked fears of war.

    Thousands of Cambodian villagers living near the hilltop Preah Vihear temple fled their homes, fearing more violence.
    Families packed rice, clothes and chickens into cars, pickup trucks and carts pulled by motorized plowing machines,
    forming long convoys heading away from the border zone.

    Senior military officials from the two neighboring Southeast Asian nations met in Thailand's Sisaket province, just across
    the border from Cambodia, to discuss the previous day's clash, which killed at least two Cambodian soldiers and
    wounded 10 from both sides.

    Wednesday's clash was the first deadly fighting since July, when UNESCO, the United Nations cultural agency, approved
    Cambodia's bid to make Preah Vihear temple a U.N. World Heritage site.

    The decision flared long-standing tensions between the neighbors, who both claim land around the temple, and prompted
    the two countries to rush troops to the border.

    "The situation on the border is calm, but Thai and Cambodian troops are still facing each other at critical points," said
    Col. Thanya Kiatisarn, a Thai military official at the border.

    On the Cambodian side, Associated Press reporters saw dozens of additional Cambodian troops in armored personnel
    carriers on their way to the front line.

    "We have been ordered by our commanders to be on alert and ready to fight," said a Cambodian soldier at the temple,
    Capt. Theam Thuy.

    Many Thais feared their country's claim over nearby land would be
    undermined and anti-government protesters pressed the Thai government to take a harder line on the border conflict.
    The protesters have riled their country's politics by
    seeking the ouster of the ruling party, occupying the grounds of the prime minister's offices for the past two months.

    The fighting Wednesday afternoon lasted for about an hour, with each side accusing the other of firing first. The battle
    killed at least two Cambodian soldiers and wounded three others, according to Cambodia's Foreign Ministry. Seven Thai
    soldiers were wounded, the Thai army said.

    Thailand's Prime Minister Somchai Wongsawat told reporters Thursday "we will use negotiation as a means to solve the
    problem."

    "Though there was a clash yesterday, it was not a major one," he said.

    Thailand's Foreign Ministry said Thai soldiers were peacefully patrolling their own territory along the border when
    Cambodian soldiers shot at them with rocket propelled grenades and submachine guns.

    Cambodia's Foreign Ministry accused Thai troops of launching "heavy armed attacks" at three different locations to push
    back Cambodians from positions inside Cambodian territory.

    The fighting was the latest flare-up in a decades-old dispute over a stretch of jungle near the Preah Vihear temple. The
    World Court awarded the temple to Cambodia in 1962, but sovereignty over surrounding land has never been clearly
    resolved.

    State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said the U.S. would urge both sides to refrain from violence. U.N.
    Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon also urged restraint and called on the two sides to quickly resolve the dispute.

    Thailand's more than 300,000-strong military uses modern American equipment and dwarfs Cambodia's 125,000 less
    well-equipped troops. Cambodian forces however are well versed in guerrilla warfare after fighting an intense civil war
    against the communist Khmer Rouge.
