Deputy Army Chief-of-Staff Lt Gen Sirichai Distthakul Monday led 14 foreign military attaches to visit a village in Si Sa Ket near the Thai-Cambodian border skirmishes.

Sirichai told reporters before leaving for Si Sa Ket that the foreign military attaché would be let to the Bhumsarol village to be briefed of the situation by local officials.

Sirichai said the foreign attaches had been briefed of the clashes by Army Commander-in-Chief Gen Prayuth Chan-ocha on February 8 and now they would travel to see the site.

The 14 countries are eight Asean nations, except Cambodia, and China, France, Japan, South Korea, Russia and the United States, Sirichai said.
