UPDATE: Photo from Thai-Cambodian Military Standoff [3]

In the photo you will see troops from both side sitting and chatting together. I hope every standoff in the will be like this.

Cambodian Foreign Minister Hor Namhong, claiming he feared an ‘imminent state of war’, appealed to the 15-member UN Security Council to intervene in the Thai-Cambodian dispute over conflicting claims to territory adjacent to the Preah Vihear temple, perched on a cliff that partly defines the two neighbouring countries’ common border.

Cambodia and Thailand assured Singapore Foreign Minister George Yeo 22 July that they would exercise “utmost restraint” and try to resolve a tense border dispute amicably. Nearly 1,000 Cambodian troops and 500 Thai soldiers continue to face each other on the disputed territory since the tension flared a week ago
