BANGKOK, 19 February 2012 (NNT) – The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Thailand is not worried that the implication of Iranian nationals in last week’s explosions in Bangkok will push it into the ongoing conflicts between Iran and Israel.

Mr. Thani Thongphakdi, Director-General of the Department of Information and Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, revealed that the Office of the Attorney General is now working with the Royal Thai Police to prepare all needed documents for the extradition of another suspect in last week’s blasts.
