  • Description

    The Cambodian Foreign Minister, Ieng Sary met the Thai Prime Minister Kriangsak Chamanand, in Bangkok on Sunday (16 July) during his four-day official visit to Thailand. Mr. Sary's talks with the Thai leaders have centred on the fighting along the border between Cambodia and Thailand which has resulted in the deaths of hundreds of Thai villagers during the last three years.

    SYNOPSIS: Mr. Sary met General Kriangsak in the Thai Prime Minister's official residence. He has also had talks with Upadit Pacharyangkun, the Thai Foreign Minister, and reached immediate agreement that the violence, which dates back to the Communist take-over in Cambodia in 1975, should cease.

    After the meeting, General Kriangsak said that although he could not guarantee peace would come to the border, but he and Mr. Sary had discussed measures which could be taken by both sides to end the fighting. Mr. Sary maintained throughout his visit that the border conflict was caused by misunderstanding, denying Thai allegations that it was due to Cambodian based Khmer Rouge forces and Thai Communists. Mr. Sary has also agreed to the re-opening of diplomatic relations and the exchange of Ambassadors between Cambodia and Thailand.
