Malaysia's Deputy Foreign Minister Richard Riot Jaem does not understand the Thai-Cambodian border situation, Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva said on Tuesday.
Mr Riot yesterday blamed Thailand for the clashes between Thai and Cambodian troops on the disputed border near the ancient Preah Vihear temple, and said Thailand "did not adhere to the agreement".
"The Malaysian deputy foreign minister may not understand the border situation because there was a tripartite meeting between Thai, Cambodian and Indonesian foreign ministers last night (May 9) and the issue was settled," Mr Abhisit said.
He said Foreign Minister Kasit Piromya will return to Thailand today and will report the result of the meeting to the cabinet next week.
"Thailand's stance remains the same. If Cambodia doesn't withdraw its troops from the disputed border area, no observers will be sent there," he added.
