Thai Ex-Premier Thaksin Scheduled for Cambodia Visit

Ex-premier Thaksin Shinawatra of Thailand is scheduled to visit Cambodia this week. According to Cambodia’s prime minister Hun Sen he’ll attend a regional economic forum, give a lecture and golf. His visit is just after Thailand’s current prime minister, also Thaksin’s sister, visited to Cambodia last Thursday.
