Asean will not intervene in Thailand's internal affairs

Myanmar, the Asean chair understood Thailand's political situation and has agreed to explain it to other Asean member states, assuring that they would not intervene in the internal affairs of Thailand.

Sihasak Phuangketkeow, permanent secretary for foreign affairs, met Myanmar’s Foreign Minister Wunna Maung Lwin in Yangon on Monday to explain the three-stage roadmap to improve democracy in Thailand outlined by the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) following the coup on May 22.

Sihasak said the Myanmar foreign affairs minister, as Asean chair, understands political situations in Thailand and would help clarify the plan for reform and steps to return to normalcy of the NCPO.

The 10-member grouping has no concerns about Thailand and is giving its moral support to the reconciliation and democratic process in the country, the Myanmar minister said.

Sihasak quoted the minister as saying that it is confident of Thailand’s ability to support Asean's development.

Sihasak also ordered Thai ambassadors and consuls to explain the situation in Thailand to overseas governments and the private sector to boost confidence in the NCPO’s plan to restore peace and order in Thailand.
