Royal Thai Army Chief of Joint Staff Highlights Exercise Cobra Gold

Royal Thai Army Gen. Ratchakrit Kanchanawat witnessed Cobra Gold activities this week and expressed his appreciation for the many contributions the exercise makes toward developing multinational capabilities -- as well as the benefit to Thailand.

As reported by Pacific Stars and Stripes, the Royal Thai Army Chief of Joint Staff drew examples from real world events such as the 2004 tsunami to explain the value of training with partners and neighbors in advance of contingencies.

Cobra Gold and similar military exercises in the U.S. Pacific Command (PACOM) area of responsibility are designed to enhance partnerships and readiness as the general noted. History is proof that multinational solutions to common problems provides the best opportunity for success.

Cobra Gold began on Feb. 4 and continues through Feb. 17.
