NSC plans to send proposals bank to Malaysia

 

Secretary-general to the National Security Council, Lieutenant General Paradon Patthanathabut (ภราดร พัฒนถาบุตร) revealed today that the NSC has planned to submit a response to the 7-point proposal of the Barisan Revolusi Nasional (BRN) insurgent group to Malaysia next week, after Malaysia has earlier forwarded the BRN’s official proposals to Thailand.

The 7-point proposal demanded Thailand to withdraw soldiers and police from the three southern border provinces during the holy month of Ramadan, despite the ongoing attacks in the region.

Lieutenant General Paradon said he will discuss the matter with secretary-general to the Southern Border Provinces Administrative Centre, Police Colonel Thawi Sodsong (ทวี สอดส่อง) in order for a response to be drafted to be sent back to Malaysia before the fasting month arrives.

However, Lieutenant General Paradon expressed confidence that violence will cease during Ramadan as the religious fasting month is considered the month of forgiveness.

He also noted that the 7-point proposal have to be discussed among residents in the region and surrounding areas.

A meeting to discuss the 7-point proposal was initially planned to be held on July 2 was postponed due to the possibility of a cabinet reshuffle.
