BANGKOK, 8 February 2011 (NNT)-Her Excellency Ms You Ay, Ambassador of the Kingdom of Cambodia to Thailand has called on both sides to settle their differences by adopting the Joint Border Committee (JBC)’s framework.
During the 8th Southeast Asian Seminar at Thammasat University, H.E. You Ay said the relationship between Thailand and Cambodia are more siblings-like rather than being neighbors as both nations share common denominators such as language, lifestyle and traditions.
According to the Cambodian Ambassador, Thailand and Cambodia are relying on their own map of the Preah Vihear where both countries claim their ownership of the territory. The Cambodian ambassador has stressed that the International Court had already verified the accuracy of the Cambodian map; therefore, the row over the overlapping land should have come to an end.
