Thai PM to confer with UN chief on Myanmar

BANGKOK, Sept 26 (TNA) — Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva, now attending the 64th United Nations (UN) General Assembly in New York, said Saturday that he would discuss with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon problems prevailing in Myanmar and the overall situation on climate change.

In a web conference with Government House in Bangkok, Mr. Abhisit said he would meet the world body chief Saturday night (New York time) before he addresses the UN General Assembly.

Major issues which he will focus on during his speech, he said, are the economic crisis, conflicts taking place in the world and climate change.

Thailand will host the ninth session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on Further Commitments for Annex I Parties under the Kyoto Protocol (AWG-KP) and the first part of the seventh session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on Long-term Cooperative Action under the Convention (AWG-LCA) at the UN Conference Centre in the Thai capital from Monday (September 28) through October 9.

Mr. Abhisit earlier expressed hope that the climate change meetings in Bangkok will give fruitful results before the Climate Conference in Copenhagen this December.
