Thai Finance Minister Korn Chatikavanij said Tuesday foreign investors support the government's use of the Internal Security Act (ISA) to ensure peace and order in the country, the Thai language news agency INN reported.

Speaking at the weekly cabinet meeting on Tuesday, Korn said he asked foreign investors for their views on the ISA enforcement to deal with the anti-government rally planned on Aug. 30.

The foreign investors expressed belief that the ISA enforcement would not negatively affect the investors' confidence, Korn said at the meeting.

Moreover, a majority of them have supported the ISA enforcement since they have viewed that the ISA will prevent chaos to re-occur, the minister said.

From Aug. 29 to Sept. 1, the Thai government imposed the Internal Security Act at Dusit district in the center of capital Bangkok to ensure security during the mass anti-government rally planned by the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) group.

On Aug. 29, UDD canceled their rally planned on Aug. 30 in the capital Bangkok. But, UDD core leaders have announced that they might hold the mass rally on Sept. 5, 12, or 19, to demand the coalition government to dissolve the House.

The weekly cabinet meeting on Tuesday approved in principle to hosting a special cabinet meeting to consider imposing the Act whenever the anti-government group holds a mass anti-government rally.
