[Thai] PM: Cambodia has removed sign [-Cambodia blinked again for the 2nd time?]

Bangkok Post

Cambodian troops have removed the "Here! is Cambodia" sign on the disputed border near Preah Vihear, Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva said on Wednesday.

"It's a good thing Cambodian authorities have cooperated with us," Mr Abhisit said.

Cambodia put the controversial stone sign up after Thai soldiers withdrew from Kaew Sikha Khiri Sikha Sawara temple on Dec 1 last year.

The sign initially read "Here! is the place where Thai troops invaded Cambodian territory on July 14, 2008."

After Thai authorities on Monday asked Cambodia to remove the tablet, the Cambodian army yesterday replaced it with a sign reading "Here! is Cambodia".

This sparked further angry protest.
