FM displeased over terror alerts

- +

The Foreign Ministry will summon the American, Canadian and Australian ambassadors to clarify their issuance of travel alerts due to possible terror attacks in Bangkok after the arrest on Thursday of a member of the Hizbollah militant group. 

Foreign Minister Surapong Tovichakchaikul said on Saturday he felt disappointed that the US, Canadian and Australian embassies in Bangkok had issued warnings to their citizens of possible terrorist attacks in the capital without discussing the issue with the Thai Foreign Ministry first. He said the move would affect Thailand’s tourism industry and confidence in its public security.

He said the ministry would send letters to the American, Canadian and Australian ambassadors, seeking explanations about the issuance of the warnings before taking counter-measures.
