Radio Australia – August 03, 2008

Officials from Thailand and Cambodia have been trading claims over another disputed ancient ruin on their border.

The two countries, which have been in a military standoff over the Preah Vihear temple since last month, are now laying contradictory claims to the Khmer ruin of Ta Muen Thom.

Thailand says it lies in northeastern Surin province, while Cambodia says it is in its northern province of Uddor Meanchey.

At talks last week, the two countries said they’d be willing to withdraw thousands of troops facing off near the Preah Vihear temple, but neither has shown signs of making a first move.
