Thai PM urges ASEAN to develop coordinated voices, innovative approaches to US and China


Recommended Posts

When ASEAN learns to speak with one voice, it will carry some (moderate) weight. In the absence of that, noone outside - least of all PRC & Usofa, and not even Oz - gives a damn what they think.

Mostly to irritate my Mrs, I can see her visibly beginning to fume as he spouts off on TV. Is this repeated all over Thailand?

Yes. I have not been able to find a single soul, who likes him, approves of him, or thinks he is doing a good job. Not one. 


His approval rating is likely down to 1%. Figure 2,200 generals, some officers, some cops, the crony senators and others who are making huge money from their rackets and mafias, and benefitting from his protection.

In his speech, on the first day of the 39th ASEAN Summit via a video conference this morning (Tuesday), Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha urged other leaders of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) to use a clear and coordinated voice on regional issues as well as innovative approaches to the United States and China

China’s CCP thinks it is big enough to push smaller countries around to take what they want, by dividing and conquering those opposed. 


Expansion into the South China Sea is one example.

It is time that ASEAN stand united as a group and show the bully they will not tolerate that kind of behavior.  The west should stand with them. 

Otherwise, SE Asia should be prepared for a bleak future wrought with enslavement and control. 

Correct.  Just look what happened to Hong Kong, and now the blatant threats to Taiwan—and you’ll see what could happen to SE Asia.  Thailand does not have a benevolent neighbor.
