President Bush and Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra have discussed the situations in Iraq and Burma in a telephone conversation.
White House spokesman Scott McClellan said (Tuesday) Mr. Bush called Prime Minister Thaksin to express his appreciation for Thailand's support of the U.S.-led coalition in Iraq.
Mr. McClellan also said the two leaders discussed the situation in Burma, but he gave no further details.
Thailand has about 450 soldiers in Iraq. But the Thai government said earlier this month it may pull the soldiers out of Iraq if the violence there worsens.
