Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha should be able to visit the United States by early next month, Deputy Government Spokesperson Lt-General Werachon Sukondhapatipak said on Wednesday.



Prayut was invited to make the visit during a phone call with President Donald Trump in April.

The riming of the visit would have to work around the royal ceremonies scheduled for late next month, Werachon said.

The Foreign Ministry was working to confirm a schedule for the visit, which Thailand expects to include discussions on the economy, security and natural disasters, the deputy spokesperson said.

While the US might take some to settle the arrangements, Werachon stressed that the visit “will surely take place”.

America’s call for Asean countries to press North Korea on its nuclear weapons tests may also be on the agenda for any talks.
