Cambodia and Thailand will resume talks on the disputed border area on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly meeting in New York.

Political representatives from both countries will meet next Monday at the UN for negotiations on disputed land near ancient temples along their border.

Much of the Cambodian-Thai border remains in dispute, and the slow pace of demining has delayed demarcation of it.

Tensions flared in July after the ancient Khmer temple of Preah Vihear was awarded world heritage status by UNESCO, angering nationalists in Thailand.

The International Court of Justice ruled in 1962 that the temple belongs to Cambodia, but surrounding land remains in dispute.
