Thailand, SL should promote Buddhist way of life: Thai PM     Follow

Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra told Sri Lanka's parliament today the two countries should work together to strengthen Buddhism as a religion and as a way of life.

Yingluck, in Colombo on a two-day visit to commemorate the 260th anniversary of Sri Lankan Buddhist monks obtaining higher ordination from Thailand, followed her brother in addressing parliament.

Then Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra addressed parliament in 2003 on a visit to commemorate the 250th anniversary of the same event.

Yingluck added both Sri Lanka and Thailand deeply value democracy, which "is not an internal affair" of any other country.

She also had talks with President Mahinda Rajapaksa and will also visit Kandy.

Yingluck will be also signing bilateral agreements on tourism, science and technology during her stay in Sri Lanka.(Kyodo)
