Thai Minister of Defence, Gen. Prawit Wongsuwon has agreed to attend the General Border Committee meeting with Cambodia to be held in Indonesia , on the condition that the host will not directly take part in the talks, Cambodian press said on March 29.

Co-chaired by Prawit and Cambodian Minister of National Defence Tea Banh, the meeting will discuss ASEAN’s dispatch of Indonesian observers to the disputed area near Preah Vihear temple, a site that witnessed a number of military clashes in February.

Earlier, Gen. Prawit refused to attend the meeting as he opposed the involvement of a third party in an issue that he said could be solved bilaterally.

The same day, the Thai parliament decided to postpone a vote on documents drafted by the Thai-Cambodian Joint Border Committee, in order to wait for the ruling of the Thai Constitutional Court on the issue./.
