The People's Alliance for Democracy's (PAD) opposition to any involvement of Indonesia in settling the Thai-Cambodian border dispute is wrong, Deputy Prime Minister overseeing security Suthep Thaugsuban said on Thursday.

Mr Suthep commented after PAD spokesman Panthep Puapongpan said he will send a letter to the Indonesian embassy opposing any intervention by Indonesia in issues between Thailand and Cambodia.

"What Mr Panthep is doing is wrong because Indonesia is following Asean's resolution.

"We should work with all sides to bring about peace," Mr Suthep said.

He said Indonesia would act as an observer, not as a negotiator.

"Indonesian Foreign Minister Marty Natalegawa, as the current Asean chair, understands the Thai-Cambodian situation and always has positive feelings toward Thailand," the deputy premier added.
