Yeah after talking during 40

Yeah after talking during 40 minutes at Osmach on Friday last week, Cambodian and Thai commanders today agreed 1-do not fighting, 2-Do not move the force, and Meet each other every two days by phone or face to face. But we are Not really confident on Thai's speech then what we thought was so true...at night in that day, Thai.soldiers restart to fire against Cambodia and Khmer soldiers at Ta Moan and Ta Lrobey battles fields. Meaningless of Minute ceasefire agreement between Cambodian and Thai commanders. Thai also signed with hand and delete with foot....really bad action.

Thai is still shooting and using the heavy weapons to fight us till today....but this evening is still quite..nothing happend yet.

For both countries, the villagers have been evaculated and my gov't has not yet sent them back to their homes as we think Thai will continue to fight us and we afraid losing our people. Really sad! The Cambodian evacuated families have been offered place to live, food to eat, doctors to take care and the the senior officers have visited them everyday.

Love,

Sarvina
