PHNOM PENH– President Yoon Suk-yeol held a summit with Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha on Friday and adopted a joint action plan calling for developing bilateral relations on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the two countries’ strategic partnership, Yoon’s office said.

He also explained South Korea’s efforts to achieve North Korea’s denuclearization and bring peace to the Korean Peninsula, asking for Thailand’s continued interest and role. Prayut said he supports South Korea’s efforts.

Prayut further expressed condolences to the South Korean people over the Itaewon crowd crush and thanked the South Korean government for the support and assistance it has provided to a Thai victim.
