Indonesia, Current Chair of ASEAN Reiterates Its Profound Concern on the Continued Hostilities between Thailand and Cambodia

Indonesia, current Chair of ASEAN, once again conveys its profound concern of the continued hostilities between Thailand and Cambodia at their border areas.
 
An immediate end to the recent outbreak of fighting is needed to avoid the further loss of lives, material damage, and sufferings to displaced civilians.
