Thailand preparing for possible refugee exodus from Myanmar: PM
We will observe human rights, he said.
Thailand’s Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha said on Monday his government is preparing for a potential flood of refugees from neighbouring Myanmar.
“We don’t want to have an exodus into our territory, but we will observe human rights, too,” Prayuth told reporters when asked about a weekend of violence in Myanmar during anti-coup demonstrations.
“How many refugees are expected? We have prepared an area, but how many — we are not talking about that.”
