Bangkok, the 3rd of June 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: As a team of diplomats/foreign advisors prepares for it impending expedition to repair tourism and trade relations with the international community, the Thai government is reportedly creating a standard information pack of ‘frequently asked questions’ to answer any concerns that foreign governments have in regards to Thailand’s ongoing political situation.

President of Thailand’s Trade Representatives Association Mr. Kiat Sittheeamorn has been appointed to lead the foreign advisory group after having recently met with US Senator Jim Webb (Chairman of the East Asia and Pacific Affairs Subcommittee of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee), who had enquired into the current situation in Thailand.

Senator Webb was informed of the ongoing efforts to restore peace and normalcy to the country by way of the five-point national reconciliation plan. Foreign Affairs Minister Mr. Kasit also advised that the government had setup an independent panel to probe the deadly clashes which afflicted the capital of Bangkok in April and May, where 88 people died and over 2,000 were injured.

In a brief 10-minute meeting with the under-fire Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva, Senator Webb explained that the US Senate had unanimously approved a resolution affirming support for a vital alliance with Thailand. He further added that the US supported his ‘road map’ to recovery and the achievement of national reconciliation through peaceful means.

Despite the visit of US Senator Webb and the formation of a proactive foreign advisory group, Thailand still have very grave concerns regarding the due legal processes that are required in dealing with the cases concerning the deaths of innocent civilians, foreign journalists, Red Shirt supporters and security personnel. Accusation are continuing to fly between the opposing parties with several committees, departments and organisations being used to deal with the situation, making it increasingly more imperative that a fair and just process is used in dealing with both sides of the recent troubles.
