From Thairath, August 4, 2003
Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra is rolling out a carpet. On the carpet: Myanmar’s coalition, democracy in Myanmar
Under the carpet: Intervention from the West
Sign in front of the cage: Aung San Suu Kyi
Caption: Use the Eastern way to lead to peace.
[During his administration, Thaksin engaged in a “constructive engagement” policy towards Myanmar despite criticism from Western powers. Local opposition figures saw Shianawatra family business interests behind Thaksin’s detente with the military regime in Myanmar.]
