(March 19, 2019) Virachai: Thai diplomat extraordinaire - Kavi Chongkittavorn

 It was in the afternoon of Feb 22 that I met Virachai Plasai, the Thai ambassador to the United States, along with his five staffers for a meeting at the Thai embassy's main conference room in Washington at 1024 Wisconsin Avenue NW. I had no idea that he was suffering from Myelodysplastic syndrome, a form of bone-marrow cancer. His face was a bit pale, but he was focused and attentive.

The ambassador said that the 70-minute meeting would be an open discussion about Thailand's role as Asean chair and its ties with the United States.

 

"Our young diplomats need to be able to reach out and keep up with the inner circle in Washington to ensure that there are no misconceptions about our country," he said.
