On 12 February 2024, H.E. Panpree Bahiddha-Nukara, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs of Thailand, had a bilateral discussion with The Honorable Antony Blinken, U.S. Secretary of State, during his official visit to the U.S. at the invitation of the Secretary. Both sides stressed the importance of strategic alliance and 190-year partnership between the two countries to response to challenges both at the regional and global levels, based on shared values and mutual interest. The meeting follows the positive momentum that has increased through high-level engagements, especially the visit of National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan to Thailand last month.

Both sides agreed to push forward the cooperation under the Communique on Strategic Alliance and Partnership, especially on defense, that both sides are scheduled to meet at the 2nd Strategic and Defense Dialogue (2+2) in Bankok between 28-29 February 2024, and on enhancing economic partnership, especially trade and investment, as well as efforts to address climate change.

In addition, both sides also exchanged views on the situation in the region, especially the geopolitical landscape and the situation in Myanmar. The U.S. side welcomed Thailand’s efforts to ease the situation, including Thailand’s humanitarian initiative. The meeting also discussed developments in other regions, which include situations in Israel, Ukraine, and the efforts to help the release of Thai hostages in Gaza. The Thai side took this opportunity to seek the U.S.’ support for Thailand’s candidature for the UN Human Rights Council membership for the 2025-2027 term.
