The Thai-Cambodian Joint Working Group (JWG) has agreed to survey the provisional demilitarised zone (PDZ) around Preah Vihear temple and clear all landmines in the area by April next year, Supreme Commander Gen Tanasak Patimapakorn said on Thursday. 

This was agreed at the Thai-Cambodian JWG meeting on Dec 18-19 co-chaired by Cambodian Deputy Defence Minister Gen Neang Phat and Gen Padetkarn Chansewok, head of Thailand's joint chiefs of staff.

Gen Tanasak said that at the meeting the two countries agreed to send teams to determine the exact locations of demarcating posts A, B, C and D of the PDZ, and to speed up the clearing of landmines in the area.
