A Thai flag has also been hoisted in a disputed area near the Preah Vihear ruins, where the flying of a Cambodian flag has raised tensions, Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva said on Tuesday. Mr Abhisit said this information was included in a situation report made by Defence Minister Prawit Wongsuwon. "We have never said that the Keo Sikha Kiri Svara pagoda should be demolished. We said only that the Cambodian flag flying over the temple should be removed. "But, meanwhile, we have also flown our flag there," the prime minister said, but did not elaborate. The Keo Sikha Kiri Svara temple is located in the 4.6 square-kilometre disputed area adjoining the Preah Vihear temple. The prime minister admitted that Thai and Camboldian military forces were confronting each other along the border.
However, there should be no problems if both sides observe the 2000 memorandum of understanding, and this is the best way of solving the Thai-Cambodian dispute, he said.
