    PM Samak praises his own trip to Burma

    PM Samak praises his own trip to Burma


    (BangkokPost.com) - Mr Samak Sundaravej hailed his trip to Burma last Friday as a success when he spoke on his weekly television programme aired on Channel 11 on Sunday.

    The premier said he managed to talk to Burmese Prime Minister Thein Sein about several important issues including bilateral cooperation on the economic front, and on energy issues.

    The trip was his responsibility as Thailand’s prime minister, he said.

    “I did not overlook the duties of our Foreign Ministry by going there. It was my job as a prime minister to judge the country through first hand experience. The general view of this country has always been one-sided, but there are two sides to a coin,” he said.

    The premier said before he left that he would not bring up human rights or democracy issues with the dictators, and also wound up witnessing the signing of a previously secret economic agreement that mandates Thai cooperation with Burma in several economic projects.

    Mr Samak added that the trip made him realise that Burma is a peaceful Buddhist country. The country’s prime minister even prays and meditates on a daily basis.

    Yes he has a "talk show" every Sunday morning. One of his famous quote was "pork expensive, eat chicken... ". Someone quoted him and say in no time, he'll be saying "chicken expensive... eat grass... "

    As the great chef, Samak should know whether something is "half-baked" or not-including "shot in the foot" statements like this when he is the titular head of a supposedly democratic government. What an idiot.

    Just another case of a politician blowing his own trumpet.

    no talk of human rights.
    um.

    i dont think burma is peaceful at all.

    at least this prime minister is staying away from drama.
    he swerved the other way.

    thanks for the news.
