Opposition leader Abhisit Vejjajiva's verbal jousting with Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen could put bilateral relations at risk, says Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra.

Mr Abhisit on Wednesday reacted to Hun Sen's remarks that he was always accusing Thaksin of benefiting from oil and gas deals in the disputed marine territory between Thailand and Cambodia.
