The two sides agreed that cooperation should be increased with the Bay of Bengal countries to deal with the serious issue of sea migration.

The Thai side expressed keen interest in the area of development of defence equipment and also for higher level of military-to-military exchange.

The air chief was presented a guard of honour at the Royal Thai Armed Forces headquarters.
