BANGKOK, November 28. /ITAR-TASS/. The visit of Thailand’s Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra to Moscow will take place despite difficult affairs domestically, Aleksander Mrykin, the Russian embassy's press attache there told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
“The Thai side has confirmed that the visit will take place as planned on December 8-9,” he said.
In recent developments, Thailand’s government has been forced to adjust its work schedule due to mass street protests in Bangkok. This brought decisions to cancel a government meeting in Songkhla province on November 29-30. The prime minister also cancelled her visit to Singapore on November 26-27.
Attache Mrykin said no Russians had turned to the embassy in Thailand for assistance throughout the sweeping anti-government demonstrations in Bangkok and beyond.
“The situation is stable. There were only several calls from citizens in Russia who wanted to know whether it was dangerous or not to travel to Thailand,” Mrykin said.On November 26, Russia’s Foreign Ministry advised Russians against visiting Bangkok and those already in the city to display caution.
“Opposition forces continue their protests in the Thai capital, " a ministry spokesman said. "Demonstrators have already blocked a number of governmental agencies and departments in the central part of the city. It is possible that the situation will escalate.
“That is why we advise Russian citizens to refrain from visiting Bangkok and those who are already in the capital to fulfill all requirements of the law-enforcement authorities and avoid crowded places.
“Considering the possibility of main roads being blocked, local authorities ask tourists leaving from Bangkok’s airports to give themselves extra travel time,” the spokesman said.
