Thailand has proposed Myanmar HM the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s sufficiency economy philosophy to be applied in the strife-torn Rakhine state for the improvement of livelihood of the people and sustainable development of the state.
Foreign Minister Don Pramudwinai was in Myanmar on Oct 29-30 for an official visit during which he had a meeting with State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and Senior General Min Aung Hlaing, commander-in-chief of the armed forces of Myanmar.
The Foreign Affairs Ministry said in a press statement released after the visit that the minister had fruitful discussions with the two Myanmar leaders about the situation in Rakhine state and reconfirmed Thailand’s commitment with the Asean and the international community to support Myanmar in its efforts to resolve the problem in Rakhine state in order to restore peace, stability, unity and sustainable development in the state.
Mr Don told the two Myanmar leaders of Thailand’s willingness to share its experiences and knowledge gained from the implementation of the late King’s sufficiency economy philosophy with Myanmar in order to improve the livelihood of the people in Rakhine state.
Diplomatic relationship between Thailand and Myanmar will reach its 70th year’s anniversary next year.
