Thai Border Relations Committee has written a letter to Cambodian authority protesting against the construction of a new temple gate and the flying of Cambodian flag at Preah Vihear's Wat Sekha Kirisvarak pagoda, saying that the action violate the 2000 Memorandum of Understanding between the two countries, report Koh Santepheap.

The protests happened after temple authority raised a Cambodian flag and built a new temple gate at the old site to replace the old one which is too old. However, the Cambodian authority refused to take down the new gate or the flag, saying that the old temple gate was built inside Cambodian territory since 1998, 2 years before the MoU was signed.

In another development, a few weeks ago Thai troops have also asked Cambodian troops to stop constructing a statue of Ta Om, an ancient Cambodian military commander who heroically defeated Thai troops along the border, at An Sess Border Pass.

On 17th June, a Thai commander named Ler Phoung, commander of Regiment 2302, met Cambodian commanders at An Sess for one and a half hour by telling the Cambodian side to discontinue building Ta Om's statue. The report said that Cambodian commanders rejected the Thai commander's request, saying that the statue is being built inside Khmer territory and therefore it could not have been in violation of the 2000 MoU..

Live in Joy

Live in Joy, In love,
Even among those who hate.

Live in joy, In health,
Even among the afflicted.

Live in joy, In peace,
Even among the troubled.

Look within. Be still.
Free from fear and attachment,
Know the sweet joy of living in the way.
