It seems that both sides do not want to be the first to withdraw. They are now watching each other.
“Both countries need to pass their domestic legitimacy processes,” ministry spokesman Tharit Charunvat told AFP.

“When the government says withdraw, we will immediately do so,” said Anupong Paochinda who is a Thai army chief as he told Reuters he was waiting an order from his government to pull out.

“For our side, there is no problem at all,” Cambodian PM Hun Sen told AP in the capital, Phnom Penh, adding, “the issue is up to Thailand to decide when to act. For us, anytime.”
