BANGKOK, 11th October 2018 (NNT) – The Prime Minister has assured the public that despite his dense schedule at this time he is still capable of carrying out his duties. 

Members of the media asked Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-ocha about his health after he immediately led a Cabinet meeting on returning from the 10th Mekong-Japan Summit in Tokyo, and due to an injury to his hand that reporters had noticed. Asked whether he had slept enough before resuming his duties in Bangkok, the PM responded that he had managed to get some sleep and explained that his finger had been bandaged due to a dislocation. 

Minister of Foreign Affairs Don Poramudiwinai disclosed today that the premier is scheduled to attend several more foreign meetings, and explained that it is necessary that the prime minister explain Thailand’s election situation to the international community. 

Gen Prayut is today (October 11) taking part in an informal ASEAN leaders’ meeting with executives of international organizations in Indonesia. From October 18 to 20 he will be in Belgium for the Asia-Europe Leaders’ Summit. 

As for the eighth Cabinet retreat of the year, taking place in Upper Northern Region 2 encompassing Chiang Rai, Nan, Phayao and Phrae, the PM is slated to visit Phayao and Chiang Rai and lead the meeting on October 29-30.
