The meeting, held biannually, addressed the performance of the committee during the past six months and issues pertaining to cross-border cooperation between the two countries.

Gen Pornsak said at the meeting, “The results of various activities carried out by the six working groups are invaluable to Malaysia and Thailand. These six working groups are Intelligence and Psychological Operations Working Group; Land Working Group; Combined Maritime Working Group; Air Working Group; Border Management Working Group; and Disaster Management Working Group.

“All working groups are set to work in all circumstances and prepared to combat any hardship or challenges with the aim to solve the common problems at the border areas.

Close cooperation and coordination among agencies have strengthened and maintained sustainability, peace and stability along the border,” Gen Pornsak told the committee.
