Court orders Thai-Cambodia troop pullback

The United Nation’s highest court has ordered both Thailiand and Cambodia to withdraw troops from a disputed border area around an ancient Khmer temple – the scene of years of violent clashes.

The ruling on Monday – at a public sitting in The Hague, the Dutch capital where the ICJ is seated – followed Cambodia’s earlier request to the court, calling for an immediate withdrawal of Thai troops from the area.

Cambodia in late April launched a bitter legal battle before the ICJ in which it asked for an interpretation of a 1962 ICJ ruling around the 900-year-old Preah Vihear temple.

    …especially the damaging to the Preahviha Temple that it should not be happened, if we had done correctly.

    That’s the way we should be! There should be no troops from both sides in surrounding Preahviha Temple. I had discussed and proposed to have no troops from the beginning for the purpose of developing tourist area. They have just wasted of the times, lives, and money!
