    Background: The Thai Foreign Minister, Mr. Pichai Rattakul, flew to Kuala Lumpur to hold urgent talks with Malaysian government leaders on the Thai-Malaysian border situation.

    Mr. Pichai was met at Kuala Lumpur airport by his Malaysian counterpart, Mr. Tengku Ahmad Rithauddeen, and other Malaysian officials.

    The two Ministers held talks at the Foreign Affairs Ministry building in Kuala Lumpur. Mr. Tengku Rithauddeen said the talks were mainly involved with recent anti-Malaysian demonstrations in the Thai border town of Betong. The present Thai-Malaysian border agreement provides for the stationing of a Malaysian para-military Police Force contingent in Betong and the right of Malaysian forces to cross the Thai border while in close pursuit of suspected communist guerrillas.

    After the talks with the Malaysian Foreign Minister, Mr. Pichai visited the Malaysian Prime Minister, Mr. Datuk Hussein. The Prime Minister told Mr. Pichai that communist insurgency was a problem that must be dealt with both by the Thai and Malaysian governments in co-operation.

    The Thai government has proposed a revision of the current border agreement between the two countries, including the withdrawal of the Malaysian police contingent in Betong. The earlier demonstrations in Betong had demanded such a withdrawal and the end of the Malaysian authorities permission to enter Thailand in pursuit of insurgents.
