08:23, August 31, 2011

BANGKOK, Aug. 30 (Xinhua) -- Thailand's Defense Minister Gen. Yuthasak Sasiprapha would visit Cambodia in late September at the invitation of his counterpart Gen. Tea Bahn, Thai defense ministry spokesman said Tuesday.

His visit will be an informal one in order to pave the way for the upcoming General Border Committee (GBC) meeting, according to the spokesman's statement.

Gen. Yuthasak would also meet with Cambodia's Prime Minister Hun Sen and His Majesty Narodom Sihamoni.

Army Spokesman Colonel Thanathip Sawangsaeng informed that the defense minister would held a meeting of the Office of National Security Council with relevant agencies and Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra within two weeks in a bid to discuss GBC meeting.

GBC meeting is normally co-chaired by both countries' defense ministers with the purpose of dealing with border problems and demarcation.

Regarding the outcome of the Regional Border Committee (RBC) meeting during Aug. 23-24 in Thailand's northeastern Nakhon Ratchasima province, Gen. Yuthasak said he was satisfied.
