Army Chief Gen Chalermchai Sitthisart said Laos has agreed to consider Thailand’s proposal to help tackle Thai criminals including anti-monarchy dissidents in its territory. 



The Army Chief has just been back from his two-day official visit to Laos to meet high ranking security officials there.

Chalermchai said he had expressed concerns over the moves against Thailand in Laos and asked the counterpart to help Thailand in the matter.

The army chief said he did not discuss with his counterpart about extradition. But the security bodies were responsible for that and were currently working on it, he said.

The army chief with other high-ranked officers paid an official visit to Laos during February 20 and 21 to discuss over military cooperation between Thailand and Laos.
