Leaders from Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, and Thailand have already arrived at Hua Hin, in Thailand, on Sunday for the first Mekong River Commission (MRC) Summit and related meetings.

Hua Hin, a seaside resort town about 200 km south of the capital Bangkok, welcomed the four state leaders and delegates amid tight security, while the anti-government movement of red- shirt protesters are staging a major rally in Bangkok.

Defense Minister General Prawit Wongsuwan has been at the Summit's venue in a bid to supervise operations of the security measures.

At least 8,000 security men have been deployed to maintain peace and order around the Summit venue.

The MRC Summit will be held Sunday and Monday after its related meetings were hosted here from April 2 to April 3.

The security operations have been managed under the enforcement of the Internal Security Act, which is enforced in four sub- districts of Hua Hin district in Prachuab Khiri Khan province and two other sub-districts of Cha Am district in Petchburi province until April 6.
