Amid reports that top leaders of various North East insurgent groups have been frequenting Thailand, the country has vowed not to allow its soil to be used for terror acts directed against India.
"We will not allow anyone to use our land for insurgency and terrorist activities directed against our friends," Thai Ambassador Krit Kraichitti told PTI.
Terming India as a "close friend", the Ambassador said that his government is also concerned about the growing threat of terrorism and would extend all help to New Delhi to deal with the problem.
"Both India and Thailand have cooperation under bilateral as well as BIMSTEC framework to deal with the problem," he said, adding that "political issues should not be allowed to create hurdles for improving economic ties."
There have been intelligence reports that leaders of insurgent outfits like ULFA, NSCN and ATTF (All Tripura Tiger Force) frequently visit Bangkok and other parts of the country to procure arms and ammunition.
"We have a joint working group on security. We exchange information about how to prevent acts of terrorism," he added.
