To bring the world to a better understanding of Thailand, to agree to cooperate on trans national crime to eradicate human trafficking and to end IUU fishing. 

 

Throw in a few other issues that will not be brought up at the UN.

Khun Prayut Chan O Cha has a busy week ahead in the US.

As indicated, he will hold discussions with several other foreign leaders and he may hold talks with president Trump at some stage.

I'm just glad it's him and not one of his recent predecessors as I just don't think they are prime minister material, especially with the high heel shoes and matching Harrod's handbag and purse.   lol

He will not be holding bilateral discussions with anyone, his interpreter will !    Nobody is interested in him or his pet EEC scheme and he cannot converse with anyone apart from his own entourage.  Just a very expensive break from facing awkward questions in his own Parliament and all paid for by the good old Thai Taxpayer !

nonsense …… he will be holding bilateral discussions with other leaders and dignitaries as he has also done at previous UN assemblies in the US,  it will be with a translator as with some other foreign countries.

He's a real trooper. Look forward to what arms deals he'll be heading back to Thailand with. Already has fingers in the pies of the yanks and the Chinese but still alot of countries that'll happily deal with army dictatorships - Russia, UK, France for example.
