US confidence in Thai political stability : Thai FM
The US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has expressed confidence in Thailand's political stability and confirmed that she would join the Asean Ministerial Meeting and Asean Regional Forum in Thailand in July, Foreign Minister Kasit Piromya said Friday. Clinton hoped the Thai government would be able to restore stability and that democracy in Thailand would grow, he said.
Kasit met Clinton during his official visit to Washington this week to boost the bilateral tie. Both discussed also regional issues including Burma and Thai relations with Cambodia.
Kasit briefed Clinton that the Thai government is moving forward national reconciliation and would amend the 2007 Constitution to be more democratic.
"Madame Clinton has expressed her confidence in what Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva is doing and leading the Thai society," Kasit told reporters via telephone conference from Washington.
