Thailand has apprehended five suspected terrorists last week in a displacement camp along the Myranmar border. The five suspects have confessed to acts of terrorism and are believed to be involved in the assassination attempt on Aung San Suu Kyi last night.
Thailand claims the attempted assassination on Suu Kyi came after many warnings of an attack, but the warnings went unnoticed.
The Kingdom of Thailand wishes to express its sincerest hope that peace can be achieved over the next few days. Thailand supports the reported peace plan that includes free and fair elections on December 19th, but would like to reiterate that in the meantime the Government of Myanmar represents the sovereign government of the people of Burma. Thailand looks forward to all parties in the coming elections, but prays for calm in this turbulent time.
