Khieu Kanharith, government spokesman, declared that the Preah Vihear Temple issue will not be on the agenda of the discussion between Hun Sen and Samak Sundaravej, the Thai prime minister. The declaration was made after the Bangkok Post newspaper reported at the beginning of this week that Samak, who will be visiting Cambodia on Monday, asked the Thai army to brief him about the Preah Vihear Temple in preparation for a discussion on this issue with Hun Sen. Khieu Kanharith told the Rasmei Kampuchea newspaper by phone, on Thursday, that Preah Vihear Temple is not on the agenda of the meeting between Hun Sen and Samak Sundaravej. He said that Samak’s visit to Cambodia was not to discuss the PreahVihear Temple, but that it is only a visit to strengthen the solidarity between neighboring countries.
