BANGKOK (NNT) - The Royal Thai Police will call a meeting in preparation for the 34th ASEAN Summit and has set up a command center for the integration of safety and traffic management.

 

The Deputy Commissioner-General of the Royal Thai Police, Pol. Gen. Srivara Ransibrahmanakul presided over the meeting at the Royal Thai Police Headquarters in Bangkok. Related units attended the meeting to discuss preparations for the 34th ASEAN Summit, which will be held from June 20 to 23, 2019, at the Athenee Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Bangkok.

 

Pol. Gen. Srivara said more than 10,000 police officers will be deployed to oversee security in areas around the venue of the summit. All officers have been instructed to monitor key routes and locations and called on the general public not to hold demonstrations during the event. Law enforcers will take immediate action to quell any incident.

 

Concerning the traffic situation, which has been affected by volatile weather conditions, the deputy police chief said the Department of Drainage and Sewerage has cooperated with the Metropolitan Electricity Authority (MEA) to deal with possible flooding by preparing additional water pumps to quickly drain water in flooded routes.

 

Roads connecting Ploenchit and Sarasin intersections will be closed to traffic from 6 a.m. on June 22 to 6 p.m. on June 23.
