India names new envoy to Thailand

New Delhi, Oct 11 : India on Thursday named Suchitra Durai, a 1988 batch Indian Foreign Service (IFS) officer, as its next Ambassador to Thailand.

Durai, who is currently India’s High Commissioner to Kenya, is expected to take up her new assignment shortly, according to a statement issued by the External Affairs Ministry.

The appointment assumes significance as Thailand in July took over the role of India’s country coordinator with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) regional bloc.
