National Council for Peace and Order Gen Prayuth Chan-ocha Friday expressed opposition to the long-proposed Kra Isthmus Canal project.



“Why should we turn Thailand into an island out of the blue?” Prayuth said while chairing a live telecast budget meeting.
China has recently stepped the proposal for building the canal, saying it would be an alternative to the Malacca Strait, which has the problems of pirates, shipwrecks, haze, sediment and shoals.
