Mr. Thani Thongpakdi, spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said that Foreign Minister Surapong Tovichakchaikul has instructed officials to promptly assure the international community about the current, peaceful situation in Thailand after a number of governments continue to keep in effect travel advisories against the country.

Since January, more than 20 countries have warned their citizens to beware of possible terror attacks in Bangkok. According to Mr. Thani, 8 of those have cancelled their warnings, while 14 others are yet to do so.

The Foreign Ministry spokesperson said Mr. Surapong has invited ambassadors and diplomats from European embassies that have not removed the travel advisory to discuss the issue on Thursday, February 2.

The Foreign Minister hopes that the meeting will provide invited dignitaries with accurate information on Thailand, which should be useful for the consideration to lift the warning against Thailand.
