AFP – September 26, 2008

Thailand’s new prime minister plans to visit neighbouring Cambodia next month, premier Hun Sen said Friday, amid a simmering border dispute between the two countries.

Hun Sen said the visit was planned for October 13, but did not say whether he and premier Somchai Wongsawat would discuss the spat over land near ancient temples along their border that led to a weeks-long military standoff.

“If there is no change, there might be a visit by the new Thai prime minister to Cambodia next month,” Hun Sen announced during the first meeting of his new government’s cabinet.

A Thai foreign ministry spokesman confirmed discussions were being held about a future visit but said no date had yet been fixed.
