  Sondhi's supporters were worried that Thailand might lose some of its border areas to Cambodia through the current mechanism of JBC and the MOU.

  Asked to comment on the postponement of a parliamentary vote as a result of the protest by Sondhi's group, Abhisit said: "Some people in our country are violence-prone."

  He said he has met with his Cambodian counterpart Hun Sen three times this year and Phnom Penh understood that the issue has been moving slowly because of Thai parliamentary process.

  The disputed area includes a stretch of 195 kilometer border line on the northeast of Thailand, of which Sondhi's supporters demanded the government to use the natural watershed as the demarcation line instead of a map drawn up by the French when Cambodia was its colony.

  Abhisit said his government had no objection for the parliament to set up a committee to further study the issue.

  Under the current constitution, the Thai government is required to seek parliamentary approval for any agreement with a foreign country which will affect the country's territory.

  Though the parliament decided to postpone a vote on the demarcation issue, it voted on Tuesday to allow the government to move ahead with another joint Thai-Cambodia body set up to deal with border trade and defense issues along their common border.
