Cambodia's Prime Minister Hun Sen will make a visit to Cambodia-Thai border area on Saturday as planned, a government official said Friday.

Koy Kuong, spokesman of Foreign Ministry said Prime Minister Hun Sen will make a visit to the border area on Saturday to meet with Cambodian armed forces and villagers who are based and living there.

Koy Kuong, however, said he was not clear whether Hun Sen will make any stop or visit Cambodia's Preah Vihear Temple.

Other government officials said the premier had already arrived in Siem Reap province on Friday, and will fly to the border area the next day.

The premier might stay for a few days in Siem Reap where he is planned to play golf with his colleagues before returning to Phnom Penh, the officials said.

Preah Vihear Temple and its vicinity has become a flagship of border dispute between Cambodia and Thailand after the temple was registered as the world heritage site in July 2008.
