Bangkok Cooperation.

Bangkok Post (http://www.bangkokpost.com/topstories/topstories.php?id=127079)reported:

China claimed on Saturday it had received strong backing for the Olympics from Thailand – and a promise by Prime Minister Samak Sundaravej to attend the opening ceremony of the Beijing Games.

An exclusive story in the official Communist Party mouthpiece People’s Daily, and reprinted in other official publications, China said Foreign Minister Noppadon Pattama condemned disruption of the Olympics torch relay “in some countries.”

It was not clear from the Chinese story where Mr Noppadon made the statement, except that it was “on Friday”.

According to the Chinese report, Mr Noppadon also “said the country’s Prime Minister Samak Sundaravej will attend the Aug 8 opening ceremony of the Games.”

So far as is known, Mr Samak has not made any such statement to Thai media, although it is widely expected he plans to attend the Games.

On Saturday, Mr Noppadon issued an official statement through the foreign ministry.

“A peaceful protest (during the torch relay) can be done in accordance with the constitution,” he said. “”Thailand believes that politics should not be linked with the Olympic Games.”

Apart from that the same report,citing

Thai officials responsible for the event held talks yesterday. Deputy Prime Minister Sanan Kachornprasart, who chaired the meeting, said protesters from overseas would be blocked from entering the country during the relay period. Authorities will be deployed to secure the event, he added.

Yet, I hope the relay route will not have to be altered, becuase I willbe somewhere around.
