MOSCOW, February 06. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia hoped for an early settlement of the political crisis in Thailand, but still warned tourists against visiting its capital Bangkok as the situation in the country remained difficult, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Thursday.
“Anti-government protests have become more frequent in Bangkok, blocking traffic and buildings of the main state institutions,” the diplomat said, noting also incidents with the use of firearms.
“A state of emergency is still in place in the capital city of Thailand and in some adjacent provinces,” he said. “We are confident that the formation of a new lineup of the lower house of the Thai parliament following the February 2 elections must be a major step towards normalization of the situation,” Lukashevich added.
“Their results will be announced after additional rounds of voting scheduled for the end of February - the beginning of March. We hope for an early settlement of the political crisis in Thailand,” Lukashevich said.
Focusing on the situation in resort zones, he said “the situation there remains normal on the whole."
"But we are still recommending Russian nationals going to Thailand to refrain from trips to Bangkok,” he added.
