(RTTNews) – Thailand also is joining the international forces patrolling the dangerous waters of the Gulf of Aden and Indian Ocean infested with Somali piracy.

A 371-member Thai naval fleet will begin its 98-day-long anti-piracy mission in the waters off Somalia in September, reports said.

Thai government spokesman Supachai Jaisamut said the Cabinet on Monday approved a decision to allocate 270 million baht ($8.4 million) for the purpose. “Thai boats, too, were hijacked many times,” he told reporters.
