MOSCOW, December 10, 23:27 /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian foreign ministry has once again warned Russians against visiting Bangkok.
“We are closely watching the developments in Thailand, where on the tide of mass anti-government actions the lower house of the parliament was dissolved,” the Russian foreign ministry said in a comment on Tuesday. “The Yinglak Chinnawat government is fulfilling its duties as a temporary cabinet of ministers.”
Russia hopes that the political crisis in Thailand would be settled “by peaceful means, on the basis of generally recognized democratic principles and within the framework of the constitution.” “We consider the early parliamentary elections appointed on February 2, 2014, after which a new cabinet of ministers will be formed, as a major step towards the normalization of the situation in the country,” the ministry stressed.
Nonetheless, the Russian foreign ministry “reiterates its former recommendations to Russian tourists to refrain from visits to Bangkok.
