Phasporn said that our diplomatic note had been forwarded to

their “National Group” in the Permanent Court of Arbitration

similar demarches from other countries in support of their

candidates and said the Thai National Group would meet soon

to assess the candidates. Phasporn said she could not

comment on which candidate the Thai National Group would

likely support, but noted that Judge Buergenthal was
