  1. Half Thai-Japanese girl seeks help to locate Japanese father By The Nation FILE photo//Google maps A 15-year-old girl in Nakhon Si Thammarat is trying to track down the Japanese father she has never met. Chatthiyamol Nakajima, a seventh grader at Sattree Thung Song School, said on Monday that she was hoping to meet her father, even it was only a one-off event. She has filed a report with the provincial Damrong Tham Centre, seeking help in locating her father, Koichi Nakajima, who her mother left when she was three months’ pregnant. The girl said her mother, Kusuma Thitsree, 40, had become depressed following a business bankruptcy and had gone to stay at a temple in Bangkok, leaving the girl to live with her grandmother. She said she just wanted the chance to hug her father once and added that her mother had fallen out with the father and had refused to give her any information which could help her locate him. The girl’s grandmother, Lamai Thitsri, 75, said her daughter had had a business in Bangkok in 2001 and married a Japanese man, who was then 45 years old. She said her daughter became angry with her Japanese husband shortly after their marriage, returned home while she was pregnant and refused to contact him again. Lamai said Kusuma’s business in Nakhon Si Thammarat flopped and she became bankrupt, causing her to become depressed and leave home to stay at a Bangkok temple. She said the only things she knew about Koichi was that he was an engineer or an academic who needed to travel to several countries in connection with his work and would now be 60-61 years old.

  5. PM: Relations with neighboring countries are strong BANGKOK, 25th June 2018 (NNT) – Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha says that Thailand’s relationships with its neighbors are strong, as evidenced by an increase in border trade. The prime minister reiterated that during the past four years, the current administration has been committed to resolving social and political problems through national reform as well as strengthening relations with foreign countries, international organizations, and allies. Gen Prayut believes that the country’s strong ties with neighboring nations are the key to national and regional development, adding that its foreign relations are at their strongest in many years. In 2017, the total value of border trade was recorded at 1 billion baht, a 6% increase year-on-year. Also in 2017, Thailand’s trade surplus was 200 billion baht. While it has remained competitive in the international arena, Thailand according to the PM has been managing its foreign policies well, lauding his government’s success in turning a ‘failed state’ into a nation that is accepted by the world community. -- nnt 2018-06-25
