Security measures have been fully prepared to ensure security for participants of the first Mekong River Commission (MRC) Summit and related meetings, Thai Defense Minister said Friday.

General Prawit Wongsuwon was speaking after he held a meeting with involved security agencies and inspected the venue of the MRC International Conference, which kicked off in the seaside resort town Hua Hin earlier Friday under the theme of "Transboundary Water Resources Management in a Changing World."

"I am here to hold a meeting with all involved parties to ensure that they are ready to make the meetings to be hosted smoothly and safely," the defense minister said in a press conference.

He also disclosed the anti-government protesters in Bangkok will come to Hua Hin Saturday and hand in a letter to police officials, officials from the Foreign Ministry and the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment to explain their ongoing rally.

The security steps have been implemented in all places: the meeting venues, participants' hotels, and along the routes from the hotels to the meeting venues, he explained.
