C O N F I D E N T I A L BANGKOK 004505 SIPDIS SIPDIS E.O. 12958: DECL: 07/26/2016 TAGS: KNNP PARM PREL IR EU AORC TH SUBJECT: THAI REACTION TO P5+1 INCENTIVE PACKAGE FOR IRAN REF: SECSTATE 119436 Classified By: POLITICAL COUNSELOR SUSAN M. SUTTON. REASON 1.4 (B,D) (C) Poloff delivered ref points to Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs Director of Middle East Division Chayapan Bamrungphong on July 24. In a follow up meeting July 25, Chayapan responded that the RTG is pleased with the incentive package and U.S. willingness to negotiate with Iran. Chayapan was particularly appreciative of the detailed explanation of the incentive package. The RTG shares our concern over Iran's actions and hopes that all sides can negotiate a durable compromise. Chayapan agreed to urge his Iranian interlocutors to respond to the package but--in contrast with senior MFA officials' previous offer to pass messages to Tehran--admitted that RTG contact with Tehran was sporadic, shallow and rarely touched upon sensitive issues such as this one.
