Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha will visit Europe next month to cement ties now that political contact between Thailand and the European Union (EU) has resumed.



Foreign Minister Don Pramudwinai said on Sunday the premier wanted to visit key EU members including France, Italy and Britain to forge cooperation in a range of sectors.

The EU announced in December it was resuming political contact with Thailand at all levels, setting aside concerns about its military rule since the 2014 coup.

European ministers have been visiting Thailand since February to strengthen political and economic ties, Don said, and he also has visited EU headquarters in Brussels.

The foreign ministry expected to finalise the details of Prayut’s trip soon, he said.
