The ambassador reportedly told Mr Witthawas he felt sorry for the haze which has affected Thailand and several other countries in the region and recognized the Thai government’s concern that the smoke haze could pose a threat to tourism industry and the health of Thai people.

According to Mr Witthawas, the ambassador admitted that the haze problem was critical and the Indonesian government has been doing the best it could to put off the forest and plantation fires which caused the smoke haze. The ambassador also said that Indonesia was willing to accept help from its neighbours.

But Mr Witthawas said that Thailand was willing to help out but would rather wait until there are words from Indonesia about what kind of help it needs.
