RTAF Chief calls for talks to end political conflicts


BANGKOK, 7 March 2014  The Royal Thai Air Force is collecting signs promoting separatism in the country found at various spots in Don Mueang area and will submit them to the police for further action.

RTAF Commander-in-Chief Prajin Juntong said he has ordered his personnel to stay vigilant after the signs believed to be put up by a red-shirt man known as “Ko Tee” were found across Don Mueang. He said the signs would be submitted to the police for use as evidence.

The Air Chief Marshal went on to express his opinion about Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Surapong Tovichakchaikul suggesting the UN be the mediator in the current political turmoil — saying that the whole issue was a sensitive one and should be left to the Thai people to sort it out among themselves.

Moreover, as it was his birthday, Air Chief Marshal Prajin asked that as a birthday present, all sides should turn to the negotiating table in order for the country to move forward.
