Country Report
The article focuses on the relationship between Thailand and Malaysia. There is growing evidence that the problems of insurgency in Thailand's southern provinces have begun to affect the nation's bilateral relationship with Malaysia. While the Thai prime minister remains reluctant to negotiate directly with his Malaysian counterpart on the matter, relations seem to have improved on the basis of conciliatory meetings between senior officials of both countries. In this context, a visit to Thailand by the former Malaysian prime minister Mahathir bin Mohammed may have provided some impetus for a greater conciliation between Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur.
