Cambodian Newspaper Claims Thailand is Planning Protest at Preah Vihear Temple

Tuesday, July 6, 2010

A Cambodian newspaper has claimed that Thailand is recruiting about 5,000 people to conduct a protest at Preah Vihear Temple on the 2nd-year anniversary of the temple's application to be one of UNESCO's World Heritage sites.

It has been reported by Kampuchea Thmey, a Cambodian newspaper, that Thailand is recruiting about 5,000 people to conduct a protest at Preah Vihear Temple.

According to the newspaper, the source of the report was a commanding officer within the Thai armed forces.

As a result, the Cambodian military has stepped up security along the border.

It should be noted that the story was circulated the day before the 2nd-year anniversary of the Cambodian government's attempt to register the disputed temple as one of UNESCO's World Heritage sites.

General Jia Dara, a Cambodian commander responsible for security at the Preah Vihear Temple area, said in an interview that he has issued a warning to the Thai government that Cambodia will not allow any type of provocation, and its armed forces have been ordered to protect its sovereignty at all costs.

At the same time, Brigadier General Yim Pim, a Cambodian army commander, has boasted that the armed forces are fully capable of repelling any invasion.

Cambodia is planning a celebration of the 2nd-anniversary of the temple's UNESCO World Heritage registration on July 15th.

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.
