Thailand's Interim Prime Minister Visits Indonesia

Thailand's military-backed interim prime minister Surayud Chulanont is in Indonesia to meet with President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.

Mr. Surayud's visit Saturday is the latest in a flurry of introductory diplomatic trips to Thailand's neighbors following last month's coup.

The Thai interim prime minister has visited Malaysia, Laos and Cambodia and is scheduled to meet leaders in the Philippines and Vietnam next week.

Mr. Surayud, a former army general, was appointed by a Thai military council that ousted former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra in September.
