The Thai ambassador to the United Nations (UN), Don Pramudwinai, said Cambodia has yet withdrawn its request for the UN to intervene in the dispute over the border area around the 11th century Preah Vihear temple. 

According to Mr Don, Thailand’s neighbouring country has only postponed its request for the time being. He said Cambodia can raise this issue again since it is still on the meeting agenda of the UN. 

At the same time, Cambodia’s Defence Minister Tea Banh reiterated to the local media that Ta Moan Thom temple, another ancient site on the disputed border of both countries, is in the Cambodian territory. He also demanded Thai troops to pull out from the area.
