Vietnam cancels Thailand travel warning

Vietnam has cancelled a warning against its people visiting Thailand, Sihasak Phuangketkeow, permanent secretary of the Thai Foreign Ministry, said yesterday.

The statement came after Sihasak and Vietnamese Deputy Foreign Minister Pham Quang Vinh co-chaired the fourth Thailand-Vietnam Political Consultation Group meeting in Bangkok.

Thailand thanked Vietnam for lifting the travel advisory.

Thai authorities told the meeting that the National Council for Peace and Order was working at restoring sustainable peace to society.

Vietnam expressed its hope that Thailand would have a fully authorised government soon.

The two countries also discussed their widened cooperation at the multilateral level, especially within the Asean framework.

Thailand and Vietnam agreed that solutions to security issues in the South China Sea must be peaceful and based on international law. They agreed that there should be a code of conduct to ensure peaceful exploitation in that sea and that concerned countries should develop marine cooperation to relieve tensions there.
