Thailand has provided written observations challenging the Preah Vihear "vicinity" map that Cambodia handed to the International Court of Justice (ICJ). 

The document was drawn up by the Thai legal team led by Thai ambassador to The Netherlands Virachai Plasai, according to deputy permanent secretary for foreign affairs Natthawut Photisaro. He declined to reveal any further details, citing an ICJ directive.

"We have to obey the court until we are given permission to do otherwise," Mr Natthawut said. The court will take about six months to consider the border dispute between Thailand and Cambodia.
