BANGKOK, 6 September 2012 (NNT)-Army Chief General Prayuth Chan-ocha told the Thai public not to panic over the sight of Malaysian flags put up by insurgents in many locations in the South, pledging that the sovereignty of Thailand remains intact.

He also said Malaysian authorities do not condone the action and they are, too, trying to track down those insurgents. Meanwhile, the General said the Prime Minister’s visit to the South yesterday was a step forward in solving the insurgency.

He reiterated that it required integrated cooperation from all units and sectors, not just the military, to prevent terrorism. General Prayuth also said that bomb attacks could not be completely prevented either in the restive South as offensive military tactics could not be fully implemented on a grand scale.
