The joint sitting of the House of Representatives and the Senate on Wednesday approved six frameworks for negotiations with five neighbouring countries.

The frameworks relate to negotiations with Cambodia, Laos, Burma, Indonesia and Malaysia. The joint sitting was held in camera.

Article 190 of the constitution requires they be approved by the parliament before talks begin.

When the public sector reform development policy loan agreement to borrow US$1 billion from the World Bank was to be deliberated, the cabinet asked to withdraw it for review. The request was approved.

Parliament President Chai Chidchob closed the joint sitting at 11.10am. There will be a meeting of the House of Representatives at parliament this afternoon.
