The military ties between Cambodia and Thailand have remained good, Thailand's national Army Commander-in-Chief General Anupong Paochinda said on Tuesday, according to the Thai News Agency(TNA).

"There is no report that Cambodia reinforces the Thai-Cambodian border," General Anupong said.

In a related development, Deputy Prime Minister Suthep Thaugsuban said Thailand did not ask ASEAN secretary-general Surin Pitsuwan to discuss the border dispute with Cambodia on Thailand's behalf.

Suthep said he did not know that a meeting between ASEAN secretary-general Surin and Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen, which was held on Monday evening.

The Thai deputy premier has also reiterated that the Thai government wants bilateral talks with Phnom Penh to settle the border conflict.

The two neighboring countries, Cambodia and Thailand, have been at loggerheads over the Preah Vihear temple, which in 1962 was awarded to Cambodia by the International Court of Justice.

On July 29 the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization's (UNESCO) World Heritage Committee (WHC) decided to reschedule its discussion on Cambodia's management plan for the Preah Vihear temple to its 35th annual meeting in Bahrain in 2011.
