Maris feels no pressure taking office from Panpree

Written by World News

Foreign Minister-designate Maris Sangiampongsa said today that he did not feel pressure in taking office from Parnpree Bahiddha-nukara, who recently resigned, as he is a veteran diplomat and had already discussed the work with Parnpree.

He declined to reveal the discussion with Parnpree, saying he has not yet officially assumed the role.

His appointment as Parnpree’s replacement was announced in the Royal Gazette today, and he will officially assume the position of Foreign Minister after participating in a swearing-in ceremony with His Majesty the King.

Maris, a former ambassador to Canada, previously served as an advisor under Parnpree, who resigned after losing his position as deputy prime minister in this week’s cabinet reshuffle.

He stated that he would have no problem working as the minister, despite not having held the position of deputy prime minister like Parnpree.

Maris, who has longstanding ties with the ruling Pheu Thai party, declined to comment today on reports suggesting he is close to Thaksin Shinawatra, the founder of Pheu Thai.
