ASEAN chair understands Thai political situation

 MYANMAR, June 3 -- The chair of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) understands Thailand's political situation and has agreed to explain them to ASEAN member states, assuring that ASEAN members would not intervene in Thailand's internal affairs.
Sihasak Phuangketkeow, permanent secretary for Foreign Affairs, met Wunna Maung Lwin, Myanmar Minister of Foreign Affairs, in Yangon on Monday to explain Thai political situations and the three-stage roadmap to improve democracy in Thailand outlined by the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO).
NCPO took control of administrative power in Thailand on May 22.
Mr Sihasak said that 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.
ASEAN has no concerns about Thailand and is sending its moral support to the reconciliation and democratic process in the country and is confident of Thailand's ability to support the development of ASEAN, Mr Sihasak quoted the ASEAN chair as saying.
Mr 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. (MCOT online news)
