Thailand and Malaysia discuss construction of bridges over Kolok river


Thailand and Malaysia on Monday discussed constructions of two bridges over border river of Kolok.

 

The issue was discussed when Thai Foreign Minister Surapong Tohvichakchaikul met his Malaysian counterpart; Anifah Aman in Kuala Lumpur during his two-day official visit.
They agreed that their mutual relationships are at excellent level and are looking forward to enjoying more cooperation in several areas including the construction of two bridges over the border river of Kolok.
The bridges would be in Narathiwat and Sungai Kolok provinces.
Surapong said they also talked about the situation in the deep southern provinces, which share a border with Malaysia.
The insurgents have attempted to create a perception that the countries have conflicts by posting the Malaysian flag at the sites of areas where attacks have taken place, he said.
Surapong said he asked Anifah to explain the situation in the deep south to the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, saying the OIC may be misinformed as the situation in many areas area has already improved.
