18:38, July 04, 2013

BANGKOK, July 4 (Xinhua) -- Thai Foreign Ministry said Thursday that it is concerned about the situation in Egypt following a military move toppling Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi.

Foreign Ministry Deputy Spokesperson Jakkrit Srivali said Thursday that the country is worried about the situation in Egypt following the ouster of President Morsi by military action.

He said the Thai Foreign Ministry will soon declare its stance on the events in Egypt and urged the North African country to solve its political problem through democratic means, adding that there is no evacuation plan for Thais living Egypt.

Although hundreds of Thais, including students, live in Egypt, Jakkrit said the Thai Embassy has not yet announced evacuation plan for Thai nationals as the situation is not yet indicating the likelihood of bloodshed.

However, the ministry has kept contact with the Thai Association and Thai students, advising them to stay home with enough food, water and cash in case of any emergency.
