Parliament will hold a seminar on the Preah Vihear dispute to share ideas on what to do after the International Court of Justice hands down its verdict on Cambodia's request for it to reinterpret its ruling to cover ownership of disputed surrounding land.
Phnom Penh has asked the ICJ to revisit its 1962 judgement which awarded the temple to Cambodia. The ruling did not mention an area of 4.6 square kilometres surrounding the temple that both countries claim.
The seminar is scheduled for Feb 22-23 and more than 600 people were expected to attend, Jaroen Jankomol, the first deputy chairman of the House of Representatives, said yesterday.
Representatives of relevant state agencies, members of various House and Senate committees, educational institutions, the media and civic groups were expected to join the seminar.
Former foreign ministers such as Kasit Piromya and Noppadon Pattama, academics and independent legal experts would also be invited to take part, Mr Jaroen said.
He said the seminar would focus on what Thailand should do after the ICJ gives its interpretation of the 1962 ruling later this year regardless of what the verdict is.
