Hun Sen’s cursing of Abhisit Right: Red Shirt Leader
A leader of the Thai pro-Thaksin Red Shirts protesters told DAP News Cambodia by phone on Wednesday that the insults hurled at Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vijjajiva by Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen’s were justified as Abhisit’s leadership of the Thai nation has been a failure so far.
“His leading of the country is a failure in both economic and diplomatic fields,” said Latdavan Vongsreyvong, former Women’s Affairs Minister during Thaksin’s premiership.
“It is a duty for him as a premier of Cambodia and it is not a surprise to Bangkok. I would like to say thanks for Samdech Hun Sen who supports Thaksin.”
Regarding a planned Red Shirt rally this month, she insisted that she could not predict what will happen, as this issue is very complicated, but said it depends on the Thai government. She claimed more than one million protesters will rally peacefully to bring down Abhisit’s government.
Hun Sen certainly had harsh words for the Thai PM. “If you don’t tell the truth about Thai troops invading Cambo- dia, let magic objects break your neck, may you be shot, be hit by a car, may you be shocked by electricity or [may you be shot] by misfired guns,” he said Abhisit during his visit to border areas.
“Will Abhisit swear on having all his family members killed and having them [perish] in a plane crash, if [he still claims] that Thai troops did not invade Cambodia?” he asked.
Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva said he did not pay any attention to Hun Sen’s curses, adding that everyone knows who was the cause of the ongoing bilateral problems.
Hun Sen’s criticism clearly showed why the shaky Thai-Cambodia ties could not be restored, the Thai premier was quoted as saying by the Nation.
Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen on Tuesday reaffirmed the Cambodian government’s willingness to resolve the ongoing border dispute with Thailand at the international level, using such arbiters as the International Court of Justice or the UN Security Council.
