BANGKOK, 27 June 2011 (NNT) – Army Commander-In-Chief General Prayut Chan-O-Cha has ordered troops to tighten surveillance along the Thai-Cambodian border after Thailand has withdrawn itself from the World Heritage Convention.
General Prayut believed that the withdrawal should pose no problem to the Thai military which will continue to do their best to safeguard the Thai-Cambodian border in all aspects to protect the national sovereignty.
The army-chief added that military personnel including doctors and nurses will be dispatched to border zones and take care of local residents to prevent them from panicking with the news. He said the next step is for Thailand to monitor if the International Court of Justice (ICJ) will issue a temporary injunction as requested by Cambodia.
