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.
The use of force is inconsistent with the vision of an ASEAN Community united as one.  
 
Indonesia calls for both parties to show courage in putting to the fore the urgent need for cease fire.
 
At this critical juncture, Indonesia, current Chair of ASEAN also calls for both parties to materialize their commitment to find a peaceful solution to the issue between them.
 
Indonesia recalled that only barely two weeks ago, at the meeting of the JBC in Bogor, Cambodia and Thailand had resolved to address the issues between them through diplomacy; however complex the issues are.
 
Indonesia believes such diplomatic path must be persevered.
