Prayut Chan-o-cha

 

The government of China has not granted Thailand permission to land a plane to evacuate Thais stranded in China after the coronavirus outbreak, Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha said.

 

The prime minister said that China is still handling the situation while the Thai government has to prepare the list of Thai people in China, an assembly point and departure table before permission is granted.

 

The Thai embassy in China reported that there were no urgent requests to return to Thailand from those who were in China at this moment.

 

The premier asked people to be calm and support the officials to do their jobs effectively, as the government has prepared a plane for a month and the Minister of Foreign Affairs is managing all the processes.

 

Reacting to a question on his reported harsh style in dealing with the media, Prayut said the government does not have enough time to answer all the questions of the press and it was not necessary to publish some details of their work.

Remember, you said it yourself, Mr. PM, you are an ant.

The incompetent handling of the floods in 2011 are going to pale into insignificance compared to what is evolving here. You couldn't have a worse person in charge of a major catastrophe. And it will be.

Meanwhile Canadian and American planes already left. 

The U.S. Consulate in the epidemic-stricken Chinese city of Wuhan will evacuate its personnel and some private citizens aboard a charter flight Tuesday.

While the U.S. Consulate in Wuhan, China has announced plans to evacuate Americans from the city at the epicentre of the coronavirus outbreak, Canada’s Chief Public Health Officer Dr. Theresa Tam said on Sunday that the Canadian government doesn’t, at this time, have any plans to charter a flight to evacuate Canadian citizens from the area.

What a thoroughly revolting man.

You mean the Chinese "President for Life"?

Because he gives no permission.

For the Chinese it is a question of FACE......

Ok, since when do you need permission to evacuate people from an outbreak, war or disaster zone?
