Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra yesterday voiced her gratitude to the legal team for their job in defending Thailand's position and argument in the Preah Vihear case in front of the world court.
Foreign Minister Surapong Towichukchaikul, Education Minister Phongthep Tepkanjana and Defence Minister Sukampol Suwannathat led agent Virachai Plasai, who is also Thai ambassador to the Netherlands as well as counsels Alain Pellet, James Crawford, Donald MaRae and co-counsel Alina Miron to meet Yingluck yesterday at Government House.
The team has one more task to complete this week: preparing an answer for the court in written form about the vicinity of the Preah Vihear temple.
Surapong said the team would prepare the letter and submit it to the Foreign Minister for Cabinet consideration today to create a map to demonstrate the vicinity of the temple. It should be sent to the court by Friday.
The team later held a press briefing at the Foreign Ministry to explain their work and provide details about the case. Co-counsel Miron has become celebrity in Thailand, with many people including journalists asking to take photographs with her.
