Foreign Minister Kasit Piromya will fly to New York on Monday, Feb 14, for a meeting with Cambodian foreign minister Hor Namhong and Marty Natalegawa, the Indonesean foreign minister and chairman of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean), the minister's secretary said on Wednesday.

Chavanont Intarakomalyasut said the three foreign ministers would then explain the Thai-Cambodian border conflict to the chairman of the United Nations Security Council.

It was expected the meeting would lead to a solution to the problem through bilateral mechanisms, he said.

Mr Natalegawa, in his capacity as Asean chairman, called on Mr Kasit in Bangkok on Tuesday after meeting Hor Namhong in Cambodia on Monday.

He said Asean would support the two countries in holding talks to solve their problems through bilateral mechanisms.
