The article offers news briefs from Thailand. Local press has reported that the one of the 131 Thai Muslims suspected of having been involved in insurgency before fleeing across the border to Malaysia, will be returned to Thailand in accordance with an agreement reached between the authorities in Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur. Having recorded an external surplus in every year since 1998, Thailand is now set to experience a deterioration in its net foreign asset position in both 2005 and 2006. An accumulation of perceived political risks, most recently in relation to the government's foreign policy fallout with Malaysia and suggestions of greater military intervention in domestic politics, has culminated in a sustained fall in the value of the Thai stock market.
