The UN released the following statement by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon:

The Secretary-General is deeply concerned by reports of repeated armed clashes between 4 and 6 February 2011 between Cambodia and Thailand around their common border area, which has reportedly claimed a number of lives and led to the displacement of civilians and destruction of property.

The Secretary-General appeals to both sides to put in place an effective arrangement for cessation of hostilities and to exercise maximum restraint. He also calls on them to continue their efforts to finding a lasting solution to their dispute through established mechanisms and arrangements and a spirit of dialogue and good neighbourly relations. The United Nations remains at their disposal to assist in these peaceful efforts.

BP: Cambodia has sort to internationalize the issue by writing to the President of the UN Security Council so while the UNSG has made a statement, will the Security Council convene a meeting to discuss the issue?
