Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra will chair a high-level meeting tomorrow with the military top brass, Foreign Minister Surapong Tovichakchaikul, the Thai ambassador to the Hague and the government's legal team to discuss how Thailand will win its claim against Cambodia in the International Court of Justice (ICJ) for the 4.6 square kilometres of disputed territory around the Preah Vihear temple. 

After the meeting, members of the press will be briefed about what was discussed and the government's position pertaining to the dispute.

It wants to make sure the public is accurately informed to avoid any misunderstandings and head off the conspiracy theory spread by certain extreme nationalists that the government is selling out over the disputed land to Phnom Penh in exchange for business interests pursued by certain individuals.
