Bangkok Terrorist threat clarification by Thai Gov

The Thai Foreign Ministry invited the envoys from seven European Union countries to hear its clarification regarding the situation in Thailand as some countries continued their travel advisories on possible terrorist threats in Bangkok, while 12 countries retain their alerts.

The deputy director-general of the Information Department Jesda Katavetin announced the details at a news conference after Minister Surapong Tovichakchaikul hosted a lunch to discuss with the ambassadors of Austria, Ireland, Sweden, Greece, Italy, the United Kingdom, and Romania.

Mr Jesda said the 12 countries currently retaining their alerts are Ireland, Sweden, Greece, Italy, the United Kingdom, Romania, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

He noted Sweden and the United Kingdom said they had not issued travel advisories but rather informed their citizens to be watchful of the Thai situation after Thailand and the United States were warned by US and Israeli officials of possible terrorist attacks on Thai soil.

Early last month, the US Embassy in Bangkok warned on its website of possible attacks, and other embassies followed suit. However, the US Embassy has since removed the warning from the main page of its website.

Mr Jesda said that all the 12 countries were satisfied with Thailand's approach to the situation
