PHNOM PENH - Thailand and Cambodia's armies have agreed to a ceasefire to end seven days of bloody clashes along their disputed border following a meeting of field commanders, a government spokesman said on Thursday.

Both sides had agreed to allow one border point to open to allow displaced people to return to their homes and villagers to return, Cambodian government spokesman Phay Siphan said.

"We will abide by the ceasefire from now on and local commanders will meet regularly to avoid misunderstanding," he said.
