Gen Chavalit Yongchaiyuth, chairman of the opposition Puea Thai Party, said fugitive former prime minister would not permanently reside in Cambodia as he did not want to create any problem to Thailand.
“I had asked him (Thaksin) why he did not stay in the neighbouring country as it is near to his hometown and family, but he said no”, Gen Chavalit on Saturday.
“Staying in Cambodia could lead to many problems to Thailand”, Thaksin was quoted as saying by Gen Chavalit.
The opposition camp chairman disclosed that he will visit Malaysia in mid-November and after that he will make a visit to Burma.
He said he has known Gen Than Shwe for quite a long time and thus he can help improve relations between Thailand and Burma.
Regarding a criticism that he was trying to discredit the government and to help Thaksin, Gen Chavalit said if someone wants to do a big thing, he must be able to stand for such a negative criticism.
The ex-premier insisted that all he had done and plans to do are for the benefit of the country.
