BANGKOK, May 12. /TASS/. Thailand is studying the possibility of participating in the free trade zone with member-countries of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) and is ready to join the initiative in case it promotes better economic outcomes of the country, Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha said in an interview with TASS ahead of his official visit to Russia.
"I am grateful to Russia’s government for the invitation. We have to study the potential joining to the EAEU (free trade zone). If everything turns out to be unambiguous and everyone only gains benefit no doubt we will join," he said.
According to Prayut Chan-o-cha, the Thai government is currently studying the proposals to join various economic blocs from the perspective of benefits for the country’s people. "Things like that should not create additional barriers for people in their ordinary life, and this is what the government is concerned about, not the need to support some country," he added.
