BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thailand’s foreign ministry on Thursday said it was “gravely troubled” by casualties during weekend unrest in Myanmar and called for utmost restraint and an end to the violence.
In some of the strongest comments yet by Myanmar’s neighbour, foreign ministry spokesman Tanee Sangrat told a news conference Thailand called for a de-escalation of the situation, an end to violence and the further release of detainees. It was working with Southeast Asian countries for a peaceful solution, he added.
