Thailand declares a stance AGAINST illegal ivory trade

Thai authorities destroyed more than 2 tonnes of seized ivory on Wednesday.

Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha presided over the ivory-crushing ceremony.

He said no elephant would be killed again for whatever reason.

Tusks from over 200 African elephants and other ivory-made items were crushed into small pieces.

The pieces were sent to be incinerated later on the same day.

Thailand hopes the international community would recognise its strong action.

The country sent a clear message that the illicit commerce has no place in Thailand.

Wildlife trafficking must put to the end, said the authorities.
