Cambodian Foreign Minister Hor Namhong met Monday with his Thai counterpart, Sompong Amornvivat, in the first high-level encounter since the Oct. 3 cross-border gunfight that wounded one Cambodian and two Thai soldiers.
The shooting occurred in a disputed border area several miles (kilometers) west of Cambodia's ancient Preah Vihear temple.
The two countries have traded accusations that the other fired first and blamed each other for being on the wrong side of the border.
