The Thai MP asked to check the entry of Myanmar soldiers into Thailand.

Thai Fair Party MP Kannavee Suebsang has called on the Thai government to investigate reports of large numbers of armed Myanmar soldiers crossing into Tak District. Yesterday, the Bangkok Post reported that a Fair Party member of parliament said that the entry of nearly a hundred Myanmar soldiers into Thailand is not a border issue, but an encroachment on Thailand's sovereignty. He also said that if this news is true, the Thai government must explain to the public what happened.


On September 3, MP Kannavee Suebsang said, citing reports from the Thai Myanmar border, that nearly a hundred Myanmar soldiers had crossed over two villages on the Thai border and set up camp. Thai residents informed the nearby Thai soldiers about this, but they did not do anything. After that, on September 5, when the issue was posted on social media, it was revealed that the Thai military had negotiated between the Myanmar military and the Karen National Liberation Army (KNLA). Because of this issue, the Karen National Liberation Army (KNLA) may think that the Thai government is siding with the Myanmar military. Additionally, they also received reports that nearly 20 Myanmar soldiers had arrived in LayTawkho village in OhnPhyan Township, bordering Thailand, and then left after shopping.


Therefore, he urged the Thai Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to treat these issues as a matter of international relations.
