There should be a conviction that as we are neighbouring countries we can ignore each other, but we cannot deny the fact that we are neighbours. As we are sharing a common land border we will be always neighbours till the end of the world. It is impossible to change this situation. Hence, it is specially required to show amicable relations, friendly acts and right stand. Myanmar’s internal affairs will never be a threat to the region although Thailand has expressed concern. The government of Thailand should believe that with Thailand’s right stand and good neighbourliness, the two countries can sort out any problems.
