Thailand and Cambodia will redeploy an unspecified number soldiers currently stationed in disputed areas around Preah Vihear temple. The move will take place on Wednesday to mark the one-year anniversary of the International Court of Justice's (ICJ) order for both sides to withdraw troops from the area.
