Thre government is preparing to hold another round of talks with Cambodia on the disputed sea border next month, Foreign Minister Kasit Piromya said on Tuesday.

"We expect to hold a meeting on this issue again in April, but it will not be related to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) Plus 3, Plus 6 summit," the minister said.

Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen is reportedly planning to send a letter to the Thai government asking for a quick resolution of the disputed sea border, so oil and gas deposits can ber developed.

Mr Kasit said it would not be necessary for Cambodia to send a letter.
