British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson will meet Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o- cha and Foreign Minister Don Pramudwinai in Bangkok on Monday to discuss UK-Thai relations.



The talks between the two countries will include further cooperation to end illegal wildlife trade, strengthen trade and investment relations, the Rohingya crisis in Myanmar and Thailand’s return to democracy as well as a range of other regional affairs.

“Our relationship with Thailand spans a broad range of issues from bilateral trade and investment to regional security and the illegal wildlife trade. I look forward to further strengthening the UK’s relationship with Thailand in the future,” Johnson said in a statement released by the British Embassy in Bangkok on Friday.

The visit to Bangkok on February 11 -12 is Johnson’s last day of an Asia tour, after visiting Myanmar and Bangladesh.

Both sides discussed issues such as economic and political cooperation as well as the promotion of people-to-people contact through culture and tourism.
