Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha said Wednesday he had received a letter from Myanmar’s military leader Senior Gen. Min Aung Hlaing asking his support for the country’s democracy, Xinhua reported.
It was a “personal letter,” in which Min Aung Hlaing cited reasons for the declaration of a one-year state of emergency in Myanmar, seeking the Thai leader’s support to ensure the country’s democratic process, Prayut told reporters at the Government House without elaborating.
“We are supportive of the democratic process in Myanmar but what is most important today is to maintain good relations because it impacts the people, the economy, border trade, particularly now,” Prayut said.
