Thai FM Surapong visited same project last month
Fugitive former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra is in South Korea and will be visiting the four-river restoration project, Xinhua news agency has reported.
It quoted Seoul's Ministry of Land, Transportation and Maritime as saying the three-day visit will take Thaksin to the sites of project, which aimed to refurbish the country’s four main rivers - the Han, Nakdong, Geum and Yeongsan - allowing him to see first hand Seoul’s river harnessing and flood control measures.
The Thai government, led by Thaksin’s sister Yingluck Shinawatra, is looking to the project, following the worst flood in decades, which affected 64 out of 77 of Thailand's provinces, the ministry said.
Thailand’s Foreign Minister Surapong Tovichakchaikul visited the same project in October. Thaksin is scheduled to leave South Korea on Thursday, it added.
