PM calls meeting of permanent secretaries and national security units

Prime Minister Surayud Chulanont calls a meeting of permanent secretaries of 20 ministries and national security units for the first time during his term to discuss solutions to the country’s problems.

PM says he decided to call the meeting as he sees that effective solutions to the problems have to be brainstormed by various government units. The meeting focuses on insurgency in the three Southern border provinces.

The premier adds that only the military is not sufficient to tackle the Southern unrest which needs cooperation from relevant people.
