The Thai-Cambodian collaboration against scam calls was discussed in a meeting between Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha and the departing Cambodian Ambassador to Thailand, Ouk Sorphorn. The Prime Minister congratulated Cambodia for rescuing Thai people from fraudulent call centers and requested that the Cambodian government speed their return to Thailand.
The Cambodian ambassador also met with Deputy Prime Minister General Prawit Wongsuwan to discuss similar matters. Since 2021, Cambodian authorities have rescued 850 Thai nationals lured to scam call operations bases in Cambodia. On other topics of discussion, General Prawit asked Cambodia to consider hosting the 6th Thailand-Cambodia joint border committee meeting after a 10-year hiatus to revisit issues related to border cooperation.
Thailand and Cambodia have pledged to continue their efforts to eradicate international scam callers in the region. Thai authorities have thanked Cambodia for its assistance, which saved many Thai workers who were lured and forced to work for scam operations.
