Border committee meeting kicks off

CHIANG RAI: -- Thai military officers yesterday travelled across the border to Myanmar for the 41st meeting of the local Thai-Myanmar Border Committee (TBC), in which Thailand requested Myanmar to assist with the repatriation of Myanmar refugees and in the fight against the cross-border narcotics trade.

In a meeting that was said to have proceeded smoothly, a delegation led by Col. Somsak Nilabanjertkul, commander of the local army division, met the Myanmar delegation led by the governor of Myanmar's Thachilek Province.

On the agenda were measures to assist the repatriation of illegal Myanmar immigrants, the prevention of cross-border smuggling, and the provision of identity documents for Myanmar nationals crossing the border to receive hospital treatment in Thailand.

The two sides, who met in Thachilek's Golden Triangle Hotel, also agreed to host join sports contests to foster local cross-border relations.
