Preah Vihear temple to reopen

The capo says Preah Vihear will reopen after New Year.

The Preah Vihear ruins on the Thai-Cambodian border will be opened after the New Year and Thailand should also open its side of the border so people can visit the ancient temple, Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen told visiting Thai army chief Gen Prayuth Chan-ocha in Phom Penh on Tuesday.

… “Since we are neighbours and cannot move away from each other, we should cooperate and stay together in peace.

“Thailand and Cambodia are like a tongue and teeth which must be in contact.  It is not right that the teeth must be removed if the tongue is bitten,” the Cambodian prime minister said to Gen Prayuth.

The man certainly has a way with words.
