BANGKOK, 11 June 2019 (NNT) - The Commander of the United States Special Operations Command (SOCOM), Gen. Richard D. Clarke, said the US looks forward to expand military cooperation with the country to fight terrorism and support the International Military Education and Training (IMET) programme.

 

The Deputy Prime Minister and Defense Minister, Gen. Prawit Wongsuwan, welcomed Gen. Richard and his entourage, marking the first visit of a SOCOM general to Thailand in 20 years. The purpose of this visit is to expand military cooperation between the two countries while promoting the IMET programme.

 

The Thai and US military cooperation has established for more than 60 years. The US is ready to share its extensive experience and knowledge in anti-terrorism with Thailand.

 

Gen. Prawit expressed his gratitude and said the Thai military is ready to expand its cooperation with the US, with hopes that the cooperation, including the IMET programme, will continue to grow.

 

The Deputy Prime Minister said he would like to thank the US for supporting Thailand as the ASEAN Chair and hopes that both countries will work closer with one another, especially in the maritime security of the ASEAN.
