  • Description

    THAILAND, WITH TROUBLE IN ITS NORTH-EASTERN REGION, WILL SHORTLY SEND A NAVAL UNIT TO VIETNAM. AT PRESENT, THE UNIT IS UNDERGOING TRAINING AT THE ROYAL THAI NAVY HEADQUARTERS IN BANGKOK.

    EARLIER THIS WEEK, THAILAND'S KING BHUMIPOL ADUYADEJ VISITED THE HEADQUARTERS AND PRESENTED COLOURS TO THE UNIT COMMITTED TO VIETNAM - AND SEVEN OTHER NAVAL UNITS.

    SO FAR, THAILAND HAS GIVEN NON-MILITARY AID TO VIETNAM. THE NAVAL UNIT IS THAILAND'S FIRST DIRECT INVOLVEMENT IN THE CONFLICT AGAINST THE VIET CONG.

    THE NAVAL COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF READ OUT A REPORT OF THE UNIT'S PROGRESS TO THE KING.

    THAILAND, HELPED BY THE UNITED STATES, IS BUILDING UP ITS ARMED FORCES - PARTLY BECAUSE OF THE GROWING UNREST IN THE NORTH-EASTERN REGION.

    THE THAI GOVERNMENT HAS ASKED THE UNITED STATES FOR ARMS TO MATCH CHINESE-MADE WEAPONS USED BY ANTI-GOVERNMENT ELEMENTS IN NORTH-EASTERN THAILAND.
