Abhisit rejects UN

14 02 2011

That’s the headline at the Bangkok Post’s website as PPT linked to a story where Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva continues to insist on bilateral talks to solve the current standoff with Cambodia to the extent of going to the U.N. Security Council to “prove” Cambodia provoked Thailand and to get support for bilateral negotiations.

Yes, we know that rejecting multilateral meetings in a multilateral meeting to ensure bilateral meetings sounds bizarre, but that seems to be the regime’s current position.

The regime’s belief is that Cambodia is seeking multilateral negotiations to somehow win a deal on territory. What is unclear is how Cambodia, with less experience and less resources should be able to outwit Thailand’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs…. Is it that Kasit Piromya’s MFA lacks international credibility?
