The United Nations Security Council will hold a special meeting on a border dispute between Cambodia and Thailand that has sparked fears of a military clash.

The planned meeting has been confirmed by the French ambassador to the United Nations, Jean-Maurice Ripert.

He has told reporters the council has discussed a request by Cambodia to take up the issue, adding that members are likely to decide later today on a date and format for the meeting.

At the heart of the dispute is a 4.6 square-kilometre area around the Preah Vihear temple on the Thai-Cambodian border, which forms a natural boundary and is claimed by both nations.

A buildup of troops and heavy artillery on both sides of the border has worried neighboring countries and the United Nations, to which Cambodia has appealed for help.

    It would be great if the peace solution would take attention of both side. We want to live in peace.
