Col Veerachon, an NCPO spokesman, said military attaches of 22 countries were invited to attend today's session, but only those from 18 countries turned up -- Australia, Canada, China, Germany, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Myanmar, Pakistan, the Philippines, Russia, Singapore, Sweden, the United Kingdom, the United States, Vietnam and South Korea.
The attaches of Cambodia, Laos, Spain and Kuwait said they had other engagements and could not attend.
