Thailand mulls new dates for regional summit

Thailand Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva is considering the rescheduling of summits for Asean-10 plus six, reported state news agency TNA Thursday. "We will decide on the dates for the Asean plus 3 and the Asean plus 6 in the next few days," Abhisit told a press conference.

The summits, to be held in Pattaya, Thailand, were postponed following red shirted anti-government protesters' invasion into the meeting hotel venue on April 12. The premier admitted security measures were too lax at the meeting where hundreds of security forces did little to halt the rampaging demonstrators.

"I will meet with the secretary general of Asean in the next two days. I will not allow the summit to fail again and will review all the potential weak points in the security measures," Abhisit said.

Before Thursday’s press conference, Abhisit briefed foreign envoys based in Bangkok at the Government House about the present situation in the country as well as his government’s policy.
