  • Description

    During the second day of his right to Thailand, May 17, U.S. Vice-President Lyndon B. Johnson had a crowded programme. Among many activities, he attended a joint luncheon of the American Association and the American Chamber of Commerce where he reiterated his theme that the U.S. would stand by its commitments in South East Asia and that it would continue its economic aid and work for peace without weakening concessions.

    Later in the day, he was present at the ceremony to inaugurate a 75,000-Kilowatt Thermal Power Station, where he said he was proud America was contributing to the economic growth of Thailand. His companion during most of his visits was the Premier, Field Marshal Sarit Thanarat, with whom he had three official talks.

    At SEATO Headquarters, Mr. Johnson met the Secretary General, Pote Serasin, and others. He also met Sir Garfield Berwick, Australian Attorney General. A SEATO official said the two visitors discussed various problems in the Treaty Area, particularly security.
