Thai DPM Prawit and delegation visit Anwar

PUTRAJAYA: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has received a visit from Thai Deputy Prime Minister Gen Prawit Wongsuwan at his official residence Seri Perdana here.

Prawit was accompanied by Thai Deputy Defence Minister Gen Chaichan Changmongko.

Prawit and his delegation were received by Anwar, Defence Minister Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan and Home Minister Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail when they arrived at Seri Perdana at about noon yesterday.

Anwar told Bernama that he and Prawit discussed various issues, including a bombing incident that derailed a cargo train travelling from Haadyai to Padang Besar on Dec 6.

Anwar then hosted lunch for the Thai delegation before they left for home yesterday.

Prawit and his delegation had arrived at the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport in Subang at 11am for the special one-day visit to Malaysia.

The visit was aimed at strengthening bilateral ties and for leaders of the two countries to exchange views and information for the benefit of the region.

This is Prawit’s second visit to Malaysia since the country’s borders were opened in April this year after the Covid-19 pandemic was brought under control.

He was also here in May to attend the 55th Malaysia-Thailand General Border Committee meeting.

Malaysia and Thailand established diplomatic relations 65 years ago.
