Thai-US relations back on the move again?

 

Thai-US relations back on the move again?

 

Soon after the Asean Summit in April,

United States President Donald J Trump placed phone calls to three Southeast Asian leaders and invited them to the White House.

Of the three, Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha accepted immediately,

whereas Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte's and Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong's responses were more guarded and considered.

As preparations are reportedly under way for the Thai leader to visit the White House as early as next month,

Thai-US relations appear to be on the move. This apparent thaw in the bilateral alliance comes with potential rewards as well as risks,

and should be put in context for Thailand's own leverage and national interests.
