Thai and Cambodian armed forces signed a ceasefire agreement on February 19, reports said.

Thai Army Chief-of-Staff Daopong Rattanasuwan, Second Army Region Commander Thawatchai Samutsakhon, Directorate of Border Affairs former chief Nipat Thonglek and Suranaree Task Force Commander Chavalit Choonprasarn met Royal Cambodian Army Deputy Commander and Prime Minister Hun Sen's son Hun Manet and other top Cambodian military officials at a restaurant in Chong Sangam to discuss the ceasefire.

The agreement says that the two sides must stop exchanging fire and deploying more troops and artilleries at the border.

They must not construct anything in the disputed border area and army commanders at all levels from both sides must contact each other regularly to prevent any misunderstanding.

The number of soldiers at the border will remain unchanged until further agreements are made.
