The International Court of Justice (ICJ) on July 18 ordered Thailand and Cambodia to withdraw their troops from the newly defined demilitarised zone in a disputed portion of their border around the historic Preah Vihear temple while urging both countries to work with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) to agree to allow the regional bloc’s
observers to enter the disputed zone.
Thailand and Cambodia earlier agreed to follow the ICJ’s order and use the GBC to consider details in implementing the court’s order.
At the GBC meeting, it is expected that both sides will specify the forces to replace soldiers at Preah Vihear in accordance with the court order.
