Prime Minister Hun Sen urges Thailand to maintain peace with Cambodia as both nations are currently facing International Court of Justice (ICJ) hearings in Hague over the interpretation of the 1962 ruling on the Preah Vihear temple.

Speaking at the opening ceremony of a new building for the Kampot City hall on Thursday, Hun Sen said keeping the peace is very important in maintaining harmony for both inside and outside Cambodia especially with a neighbouring country like Thailand.

"We have to solve any problems peacefully and we don't want small issues turning into conflicts between both countries," Hun Sen said. "And must peacefully avoid negative affects on all factors of our two nations."

He added, he was pleased with the present situation between Cambodia and Thailand, especially during the Cambodian New Year when both nationalities were able to go back and forth across each others borders.-The Nation (April 19, 2013)
