THAILAND: Foreign Ministry denies hiring US lobbying firm


The Foreign Ministry and Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Suprapong Tovichakchaikul had never hired Davenport McKesson Corporation to provide lobbying services in the US, said the ministry, adding that none of them have any connections with the firm.

The Foreign Ministry further said that a check of the background of the American company by the Thai embassy in Washington DC in coordination with some US agencies showed that all the US agencies claimed to be the firm’s clients had denied they had anything to do with the firm.

Earlier, former Democrat MP Kobsak Sabhavasu posted a message on his Facebook Page accusing the government of entering into a secret deal with the US government to allow the US to build a naval base in Thailand.  He also accused the government of hiring the lobbyist firm to provide lobbying services for the government in the US.
