Hun Sen Sends Message for Border Soldiers to Maintain Peace
By Hul Reaksmey - October 28, 2013
Speaking to soldiers along the Thai border via video link, Prime Minister Hun Sen on Friday urged them to maintain peace with their neighbor ahead of a forthcoming ruling by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) that could settle the fate of contested land near Preah Vihear temple.
The ICJ is scheduled to issue a judgment on November 11 on Cambodia’s request that it decide who owns a 4.6 square km plot of land beside the temple, land over which the two countries have fought several brief but deadly clashes in recent years.
