Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva on Sunday morning met with his Cambodian counterpart Hun Sen in Jakarta for sideline bilateral talks on the border dispute, acting government spokesman Panitan Wattanayakorn said.
The sideline border talk was mediated by Indonesian president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, Mr Panitan said.
He said the unofficial discussion was aimed at peacefully ending the border conflict, encouraging Cambodia to return for talks and refraining from using force in settling the border dispute.
Mr Panitan said Mr Abhisit told Hun Sen that Thailand prefers bilateral talks on the border dispute and does not want the case to be brought to the international community.
