Parliament will tomorrow consider an important memo from a ThaiCambodian Joint Border Commission meeting.
"I think it must be something about territory or budget," Kriangkrai Sampatchalit, directorgeneral of the Fine Arts Department, said yesterday.
The commission did not need to submit its minutes of the meeting to Parliament if it just agreed on a cooperation framework, he said.
"So far, I don't know the details of the memo that Parliament will look at on August 28," he said.
The department had been in charge of the preservation of historical sites and academic aspects only, he said.
Thailand and Cambodia have worked together well on the academic front even though both have claimed ownership to a 4.5squarekilometre area around Preah Vihear Temple on their common border, he added.
