Fair party MP presented to the Thai Parliament to establish a safe zone for war refugees.


On August 10th, Fair Party MP Kanawee Suebsaeng made a recommendation to the president of the Thai House of Representatives to establish a safe zone for those who fled due to the battles in Myanmar.

He said, "When the new government forms a new political committee, it is likely that the matter will be discussed with the House of Representatives. According to the United Nations, there are more than one million displaced people throughout Myanmar, of which more than three hundred thousand are at the border adjacent to the districts of Chiang Rai, Chiang Mai, Mae Hong Son, Tak District, Kanchanaburi, and Ranong, and are ready to cross over to Thailand.” He also said that the Burmese military’s ground and air raids have harmed Thai society for the past two years, there are challenges for Thailand to solve this problem if those 300,000 people come to Thailand, there is no condition to accept them all.


Fair Party MP Kanawee Suebsaeng also suggested that as the president of the House of Representatives, he should write to the Prime Minister to find a solution to these problems.

We believe that these problems can only be solved if the Myanmar military side reduces its offensives and encourages discussions and negotiations with the Myanmar military to designate an area five kilometers away from the Thai border as a safe zone. He said that if a safe zone can be established, not only will the burden faced by Thai citizens along the border be reduced, but refugees will also be able to stay safely there.

If a two-way dialogue is not possible, the international community needs to find a collective solution, also the chairman of ASEAN must discuss with the Burmese military council to implement a safe zone based on the five principles of peace, and the prime minister of Thailand must fully establish policies and procedures and order the border security groups to follow these policies. He also urged the president of the House of Representatives, to help Burmese refugees and to establish a safe zone, consult with international organizations, embassies, and domestic and foreign social organizations and seek assistance.
