National security enhanced for ASEAN Community 2015

Prime Minister and Defense Minister Yingluck Shinawatra says that she has instructed the Royal Thai Army to develop its personnel for national defense and she is ready to support, covering their security operations along the Thai border.

Yingluck told reporters on Friday that she has, however, learned that the Royal Thai Army has long-term plans for the policy and has also prepared for Thailand’s participation in the Asean Community (AC).

The prime minister also acknowledged that the Royal Thai Army has equipment to rescue victims in disasters and has ordered the Royal Thai Army to integrate its disaster response operations with the Interior Ministry and the Water Management and Flood Prevention Commission for effective and swift rescue missions.

Yingluck made the remarks after visiting the Royal Thai Army headquarters in Bangkok earlier Friday.
