Activists fear that Pheu Thai-led govt will concede to Cambodia’s claims in Gulf

Thai nationalists and royalists rallied outside the Royal Thai Navy headquarters on Wednesday, calling for the Navy chief to actively protect Thai territorial waters from unilateral claims by Cambodia.


Members of the People’s Network for Thailand Reform and People’s Centre to Protect the Monarchy also submitted a petition addressed to Navy commander-in-chief Admiral Adung Phan-iam.
