Thailand's Internal Security Operations Command (ISOC) on Friday approved a security plan for the upcoming summit of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) with 18,000 personnel to be deployed to maintain order at and around the summit venues in the Thai seaside resorts of Cha-am and Hua Hin, state news agency TNA reported.

The government earlier resolved to invoke the Internal Security Act (ISA) to maintain law and order between October 12 and 27 in five sub-districts of Phetchaburi's Cha-am district and four sub-districts of Prachuab Khiri Khan's Hua Hin district.

Dr Panitan Wattanayakorn, deputy secretary-general to the prime minister, said that Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva chaired the ISOC meeting which approved the "Cha-am-Hua Hin 521" operational plan and the establishment of a joint security operations centre for the 15th Asean Summit under the supervision by defence minister.

He added that combined forces of 18,298 security personnel, including 4,000 police and 5,000 military, will be deployed to maintain order during the Asean Summit and related meetings.
