EU-Thai relations remain strong


BANGKOK, 15 July 2015, The European Union (EU) has dismissed rumors floated in social media outlets that it has imposed sanctions on Thailand.

According to the Permanent Secretary to the Prime Minister’s Office, M.L. Panadda Diskul, the EU has officially informed Thailand to disregard the claims, saying the information on various social networks is not true.

The EU and Thailand have a long history together. They have built strong ties in trade, tourism, investment, cultural cooperation, and public cooperation.

Posting such incorrect and misleading information not only creates misunderstanding among the public, but also jeopardizes the good relations between Thailand and the EU, M.L. Panadda said.
