Leaders and followers of the People's Alliance for Democracy (PAD) gathered in front of Government House on Monday morning, pressuring Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva to terminate the memorandum of understanding on overlapping maritime boundaries in the Gulf of Thailand signed with Cambodia in 2001.

PAD core member Pibhop Dhongchai said they wanted the government to revoke all bilateral projects with Cambodia and financial assistance for the neighbouring country.

The yellow-shirt group also demanded the government drive the Cambodian army out of the disputed border area around the ancient Preah Vihear temple.

After a 30-minute talk with the prime minister, the PAD leader said Mr Abhisit promised him that he will raise the group's demands at the cabinet meeting tomorrow.
