The government of Australia is helping Thailand government to build climate resilient urban centres as well as eco-friendly transport, in a effort to save climate, the Australian government said.
“I’m pleased that Ms. Kristin Tilley has been named Australia’s ambassador for climate change. Australia is committed to accelerate climate action both domestically and internationally. We are assisting Thailand in developing climate-resilient urban areas and environmentally friendly transportation”, Angela Macdonald, Australian ambassador to Thailand said on Twitter.
The statement came after Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese met Thailand Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha and said, this has to do with the world’s economies that are integrating economically the quickest in recorded human history. I will therefore be attending the APEC Summit and engaging in a number of bilateral discussions over the course of the next two days.
“Our embassies in Bangkok and Yangon have put in a lot of effort. I also want to congratulate our ASEAN allies, especially Prime Minister Hun Sen of Cambodia, who has presided over ASEAN and maintained pressure. The Prime Minister is one of our friends here in Thailand. However, there are other ASEAN allies who have consistently advocated for the release of Professor Turnell. But Sean told me that he also wanted to express his gratitude to the Australians who persisted in their efforts to demand his release and who did not give up. And he was acutely aware of that when he was being held. He experienced hardship. He claims that he asked for two lines to be included, one of which is a straight quote from Sean: “People have been great.”
