Don’t allow anyone to use you as pawn : Abhisit to Hun Sen

Cambodia’s Prime Minister Hun Sen may have misunderstanding regarding fugitive ex-Thai prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra which made him plan to appoint Thaksin as economic advisor.

Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva said Hun Sen should reconsider his plan and balance between the national interest of both countries and an individual.

Abhisit asked Hun Sen not to allow anybody to use him as a tool in the matter.

“I beg you, Mr Hun Sen, don’t allow anybody to use you as a pawn,” Abhisit told a press briefing, a few hours after Hun Sen declared he would appoint Thaksin as economic advisor.

Hun Sen also compared Thaksin to Aung San Suu Kyi of Burma, saying many people talked about Suu Kyi, so why he could not talk about Thaksin. “I don’t think Suu Kyi could be compared to Thaksin,” Abhisit said.

He added that Hun Sen came to attend Asean Summit, he should make the meeting achieved.

Abhisit said the extradition is a legal judgment which needs information from both sides to prove whether it is really a political case or criminal case.

“It is a process to prove information from all parties, we shall not make any prejudgment,” Prime Minister Abhisit said.

    I’m really surprised to hear that Hun Sen did that, I’m sure there are more qualify individuals out there that would be more suitable for the job.

    • Yes, I am not sure what is the purpose. First, it maybe because of the border conflict with Thailand. Second, for his own benefit because Thaksin and Hun Sen are goodfriends in business world. I am not sure what is going to happen next. Anything can happen anytime between Khmers and Thais.
