"Foreign policy and diplomacy are like history. They are inclusive of everything. Anything that involves non-domestic affairs can be considered foreign affairs, and if there are foreign affairs, then there has to be foreign policy. Foreign affairs do not happen in a vacuum. They always happen in a context, especially for a country like ours, which is located on the mainland of the Asian continent. We always have to interact with our immediate neighbours. This is always the start of our foreign policy and diplomacy." (page 173)
Tej Bunnag is Secretary-General at the Thai Red Cross Society and former minister of foreign affairs of Thailand.
Anuson Chinvanno is Director of the International Studies Center (ISC), Thailand.
