Thailand rejects statements that previous Sri Lanka Leader sought refuge


(MENAFN) Thailand has rejected statements that previous Sri Lanka Leader Gotabaya Rajapaksa has sought refuge in the nation.

The Thailand Foreign Ministry stated it got a call from Rajapaksa to head to the nation without planning to look for political refuge.

"Thailand saw no problem with Rajapaksa entering on a diplomatic passport, which would allow him to stay 90 days," Daily Mirror announced, citing Thailand Ministry spokesperson Tanee Sangrat.

After escaping from his island nation in July amid mass complaints, Thailand would be the second Southeast Asian nation following the Maldives that Rajapaksa wants to temporarily live in.

Previously, it was declared that previous Sri Lanka Leader Gotabaya Rajapaksa might visit to Bangkok from Singapore on August 11 when his visa is no longer valid.

The ex-president was issued a two-week’s visit pass after he reached at the Changi Airport in Singapore from the Maldives in July, and he was given the green light to stay there for 14 days.
