PHNOM PENH, Cambodia - Cambodia's leader is urging Indonesia to send observers to his country's disputed border with Thailand, even if Bangkok doesn't consent.

Acting for the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, Indonesia brokered an agreement last month under which military observers will be sent to the border to enforce a cease-fire. The truce was imposed after deadly clashes erupted over disputed land surrounding an 11th century temple.

Prime Minister Hun Sen says he proposed Sunday that Indonesia send observers to inspect at least 14 places and stay for at least 12 months. He was responding to an Indonesian request for plans for implementing the truce from each country; Thailand has not responded.
