Caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra held closed-door talks with navy chief Adm Narong Pipattanasai Wednesday morning to seek clarification of reports that several retired and current Navy SEALs officers are working as guards at the anti-government protests.
A military source said the talks occurred at 10.30am at the Air Force 80 Year Convention Hall. It was mediated by defence permanent secretary Nipat Thonglek and army chief Prayuth Chan-ocha to allow both sides to clear suspicions and mistrust between the government and the military.
The talks also involved Navy SEALs commander Adm Winai Klom-in who has been widely criticised on social networks for sending SEALs to provide safety for the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) leaders.
