Temple talks soon to start again

Thailand's newly elected Prime Minister Somchai Wongsawat says he's ready to hold talks with his Cambodian PM Hun Sen to resolve the border dispute near the temple Preah Vihear. This reports Radio Australia.

Earlier this week Radio Australia reported that Hun Sen accused Thai soldiers of "being thieves creating anarchy" around border areas. They further reported that Hun Sen has hinted that he might take his complaints to the UN Security Council if Cambodia and Thailand cannot resolve the disagreement, and that Somchai Wongsawat has said he expects officials to hold talks on the matter during the UN General Assembly in New York next week.

Background: New temple on the World Heritage list... and Temple talks on hold.
