The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) has admitted that Thailand needs to be more thorough regarding immigration security.

Foreign Minister Don Pramudwinai has urged the public to wait for official statements before making any assumptions. His comments came after the arrest of a foreign suspect believed to have been involved in Ratchaprasong blast.

The MFA will also increase its border and airport security. People entering and leaving the country will be checked by immigration officials more rigorously from now on.

The Foreign Minister called for more immigration staff to track down foreigners who might have overstayed their visas and deal with those staying in Thailand.

Mr. Don added that everyone must work side by side to regain the confidence of the global community regarding the safety of foreign travelers.
