Thailand welcomes Kim-Trump summit outcome
Thailandâs Foreign Ministry has welcomed Tuesdayâs historic meeting between the US President Donald Trump and North Korea Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un as landmark towards the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula.
âThis epoch-making summit reflects the strong commitment of the two leaders to achieve sustained peace, stability and prosperity on the Korean Peninsula with denuclearisation as the key step,â a ministry press release said.
Thailand also has âardent hope that all parties concerned will exert their utmost efforts in attaining these significant goals for the benefits of the region and the worldâ, it added.
Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha said earlier that he welcomed the meeting as âa good sign to the world, if they can practise what they agreedâ.
Both the US and North Korea have embassies in Bangkok. although Thailand has been pressed to limit its diplomatic and economic ties with the totalitarian country in recent years.
As a third party, Thailand has stressed it is neutral over the Korean peninsula issue. Yet, it has abided by the Asean consensus to âensure peace and stabilityâ over the region, including following the United Nations Security Councilâs resolutions that denounce North Korea.Source: Google News Thailand | Netizen 24 Thailand
