Malaysia prepared to promote Southern Thailand assent discourse on request, says Rahim Noor – Nation

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): Malaysia is prepared to promote uninformed dialogues between Majlis Syura Patani (Mara Patani) and a supervision of Thailand in a bid to move assent to excitable southern Thailand. 

Malaysia’s facilitator, former Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Noor, pronounced Kuala Lumpur was in a “wait and see” proviso following a preference of a Mara Patani discourse row to postpone all talks with a Thai government.

“This is a domestic issue. When one side creates an exploration or seeks growth from a other side, we will facilitate. If not, we will be silent, wait and see if there is any development.

“There contingency be a ask from one side or a other for negotiations (to be held). We can't arrange anything unless there is a request. We only facilitate,” he told Bernama when asked to criticism on a preference of a Mara Patani discourse panel.

Mara Patani represents several groups in southern Thailand.

The conduct of a panel, Shukri Hari, reportedly pronounced that a preference to postpone talks until after a end of Thailand’s ubiquitous choosing in Mar followed a group’s beating with a opinion of a conduct of a Thailand assent panel, Gen Udomchai Thammasarorat.

He pronounced Mara Patani and a Thailand discourse teams arrived in Kuala Lumpur on Feb 2 for a rudimentary assembly though Mara Patani was sensitive that Gen Udomchai would not attend a event.

He pronounced Mara Patani also called on a Thai supervision to reinstate Gen Udomchai in sequence to find a resolution to a long-running dispute in southern Thailand.

The rudimentary meeting, that was to have been hold on Sunday (Feb 3), was organised by Abdul Rahim who was allocated as monitor by Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

Since it erupted in 2004, a dispute in a 4 southern Thailand provinces of Pattani, Yala, Narathiwat and Songkhla has claimed some-more than 6,500 lives. – Bernama
