PM Prayut holds unscheduled assembly with US CIA head

PM Prayut Chan-o-cha had an formally unscheduled assembly this morning with David Cohen, the deputy director of the US Central Intelligence Agency. The unannounced meeting occurred this morning when the deputy director of the CIA dropped in on the prime minister at Government House.
The unscheduled meeting between the Thai prime minister and the American intelligence official was held at 9:30 am on the Thai Khu Fa building at Government House. The assembly ran for about 45 minutes whole.
While he was on the premises, the CIA deputy director held a number of different conferences. At Command Building 1, deputy director Cohen met with Deputy Prime Minister Prawit Wongsuwan, and also had talks with National Security Council Secretary-General Supot Malaniyom on the Red Building.
As could be anticipated with reference to high-level talks with US covert intelligence leaders and top Thai political leaders, the unscheduled meeting and all the participants in conferences were closely guarded. Security prevented reporters from a lot coverage of the assembly and so they could only stand some distance away, taking pictures from afar.
No particulars on what the conferences were pertaining to or what matters have been mentioned at the conferences have been made public. Basic is unclear whether or not the unscheduled assembly was rapidly organized last minute and, as such, were left off the prime minister’s schedule, or if the meetings have been planned to be covert and deliberately left off the official schedule for the day..
