Surapong seeks world backing

Caretaker Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Surapong Tovichakchaikul yesterday urged the world community to condemn the anti-government People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) for blocking the February 2 election.

Speaking before foreign diplomats from 50 countries, including 31 ambassadors, and four international organisations at the Foreign Ministry, Surapong urged democratic countries to support Thailand's democracy and condemn those who violate the rule of law.

Surapong has asked for security officers to handle the protesters as the ministry's officials have been told to come to work normally from Monday.
