Cambodia Awaits Thai Withdrawal of Troops

Cambodian troops have not moved away from the border, and will not, until Thailand withdraws its troops, Prime Minister Hun Sen said Tuesday.

Hun Sen's comment follow a meeting between the Cambodian and Thai foreign ministers Monday that yielded little results in the two-week military standoff between the neighbors.

Both sides have agreed that a joint border committee should meet as soon as possible to discuss demarcation and surveys of the disputed border.

Region 4 Deputy Commander Noun Nov told VOA Khmer Tuesday 18 unarmed Thai troops had crossed the Cambodian border Tuesday, similar to the crossing of 12 unarmed troops last week, looking for a border demarcation post.
