UN calls for end to violence, offers to mediate
Phuket Gazette/ The Nation
PHUKET: UN Secretary General Ban Kimoon is ready to assist in any way he can to end the political violence in Thailand.

He called for an immediate end to escalating political violence and urged authorities to bring those responsible to justice.

In a statement issued by his spokesperson in New York, Mr Ban condemned the aggression, which included armed attacks this weekend against anti-government protesters that led to the deaths of three children.

“The Secretary General strongly believes that there is no place for violence on any side in resolving political differences and disputes,” his spokesperson said.

“Mr Ban is ready to assist in any way possible.”

The top UN official has called on all sides to respect human rights and the rule of law, prevent any new attacks and “engage in meaningful dialogue” towards ending the crisis and advancing reform.
