Thailand firm on defending ICJ case

- +

The government is determined to defend Thailand's sovereignty in the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to ensure that Cambodia will not be allowed to register the 4.6-sq km of land around Preah Vihear temple as a World Heritage site, deputy government spokesperson Sunisa Lertpakawat said Thursday. 

She rejected Democrat Party claims that the government was not giving its best at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) and insisted the Yingluck Shinawatra-led administration would maintain the same position as those led by the late Samak Sundaravej and Thaksin Shinawatra.

Lt Sunisa said the government had given moral support to the Thai legal team in the current ICJ hearing and believed Thailand and Cambodia would find a peaceful solution to their dispute under international law.
