via CAAI

­Thai Foreign Minister Kasit Piromya has blamed Russia and other countries for their alleged assistance to Cambodia during the recent military clashes at the border between the two countries. "Russia, India and China might have backed Cambodia's aggression against Thailand on February 4, and now Cambodia is taking the issue to the UN Security Council”, Kasit Piromya said, as reported by the Nation newspaper. Cambodia and Thailand have a long-running dispute over their common border territory. Recent military clashes, which involved artillery and rockets, took the lives of 12 people, both military and civil. The UN Security Council will consider the issue on Feb 14 in New York.
