Thai Foreign Minister Resigns Following Cabinet Reshuffle

Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin has received Parnpree’s resignation letter, government spokesperson Chai Wacharonke told media.

Thai Foreign Minister Parnpree Bahiddha-Nukara has tendered his resignation, announced by the government on Sunday, following his removal from the position of deputy prime minister during a cabinet reshuffle. The unexpected departure comes at a critical juncture as Thailand endeavors to play a role in resolving the ongoing conflict in neighboring Myanmar.

Bahiddha-Nukara’s resignation leaves the foreign ministry without a leader, notably as he spearheaded efforts concerning Myanmar affairs. Just last month, he initiated a humanitarian endeavor aimed at facilitating dialogue between opposing factions amidst years of turmoil and violence following a coup.

The former minister’s influence extended beyond regional diplomacy, as he played a pivotal role in securing the release of numerous Thai hostages held by Hamas in Gaza.

Confirmation of his resignation came from government spokesperson Chai Wacharonke, who informed Reuters that Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin had received Bahiddha-Nukara’s resignation letter. This development underscores significant changes within Thailand’s political landscape, setting the stage for potential shifts in the country’s approach to regional affairs and internal governance.
