Cambodia`s Hun Sen says Thai vote to improve ties

Cambodia and Thailand have battled over disputed land surrounding an ancient Hindu temple.



Phnom Penh: Cambodian leader Hun Sen says the opposition election win in Thailand will improve ties between the neighbors that have fought repeated border clashes in recent months.

The party linked to toppled Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra swept weekend elections and a new government led by Thaksin`s sister is poised to take power in Bangkok within weeks.

The two countries have battled over disputed land surrounding an ancient Hindu temple that straddles their common border.

Hun Sen said on Wednesday the vote marked the start of "a new era of cooperation" and differences between the countries should be solved peacefully.

Thaksin is considered close to Hun Sen. He briefly was an adviser to the Cambodian government after being ousted in the 2006 military coup.
