China orders 100,000 tonnes of broken rice from Thailand

Junta chief Gen Prayuth Geb Prayuth Chan-ocha said Friday that China this month ordered 100,000 tonnes of broken rice from Thailand.

Speaking during his weekly TV programme, Prayuth said China also asked Thailand to send samples of rice in the stock for it to check so that it could press more orders.

He added that China regards that rice is a symbol of cultural tie between the two countries.
