    The main thing is that money would be paid in advance for weapons

      Most importantly, money would be paid for weapons in advance
      Yeah, they’ll pay with palm oil, which the Russians will soon get out of their ears ....

    If there are "partners" in the West and do not want to trade with us, then we have someone in the East to be friends with and to trade with.

    Russia needs new military partners and allies. Thailand could just become one of these. Thanks to Russia, Thailand has remained the only country in Southeast Asia that has never been a colony ...

    Thais and Indonesians capricious, but solvent good
    The region is in conflict, they will smile at each other’s eyes, but everyone is against everyone request
    There is its own arms race request
    Our aircraft, boats for various purposes, diesel-electric submarines are in demand - competitively priced, excellent in quality good
    Climbing the market with armored vehicles will be more difficult - they are developing there, and the Chinese brothers occupy their niche tightly request

    At different times, Thailand fought against France, Japan, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia. In the 1970s and 80s, with the help of the United States, a program for the rearmament of the armed forces was implemented, and since the mid-1990s, a program of complete reform and re-equipment has been implemented. In the armament of the Thai army, the United States plays a major role: the supply of armaments, the equipment of enterprises for the production of armaments and ammunition, the replacement of old armaments, and training of specialists.
    Thailand’s military cooperation with Russia is a touchstone for possible contracts for aviation and air defense. Syrian advertising made Thais think about it. So far, everything is foggy and in the distant future. And the very fact of such negotiations will force the United States to reduce appetites and prices.

      Look at this map.
      Black badges are American bases.
      See how densely crow crowed?
      That's just the same!
      And you are about military cooperation.

    The point, presumably, is not in lowering the prices of American weapons, but in the prospects for reducing US influence in the region.

    It is not a fact that something sensible will come out of these intentions over time, but it does not interfere with trying anyway. As they say, under a lying stone and water does not flow.

    It is not written here, but they said on TV that they would build a milk factory, an investment of $ 1 billion.

    So I sit and think it will be cow's milk or milk in palm oil?
    For some reason, it seems to me that such money can be invested only to increase their own profits ... i.e. increase palm oil intake.

    It's time to write a petition on change.org

    Who cooperates with whom: are we with them, are they with us, or are we all cooperating with the United States?
