BANGKOK, May 12. /TASS/. Thailand’s Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has told TASS he considers Russia as a superpower that may play an important role in resolving international conflicts and also supporting developing countries.
"In my opinion, Russia is a superpower, of course. I would like it to have a very constructive role in maintaining stability and security in the world," the Thai premier said in an interview ahead of his official visit to Russia.
Prayut also voiced concerns over the growing number of conflicts on the planet. "I would like to see how Russia plays a huge role in eradicating conflicts…I also expect that Russia as a superpower will contribute to the developing countries’ stability and prosperity by raising their level from a low to a middle and even a high one," he said.
The Thai prime minister is due to pay an official visit to Russia late this week. He plans to visit St. Petersburg and also attend the Russia-Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) anniversary summit in Sochi on May 19-20.
