Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Prak Sokhonn is set to lead a delegation to attend the Asean Foreign Minister’s Retreat (AMM Retreat) in Chiang Mai, Thailand, on Thursday and Friday.

The planned visit follows an invitation from his Thai counterpart Don Pramudwinai, said the ministry’s press release issued on Tuesday.

“At the AMM Retreat, the Asean foreign ministers will discuss various priority areas of common interest.

“Asean will be carrying out these priority areas in 2019 in the Asean community building process and work towards creating a more resilient and people-centred Asean Community.

“We will also intensify relations with external partners for mutual prosperity,” the press release stated.

As the rotating chairman of Asean this year, Thailand has adopted the theme Advancing Partnership for Sustainability, the statement said.

Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ spokesman Ket Sophann could not be reached for comment by The Post on Tuesday.
