At a meeting held in Tokyo on Thursday, Eto agreed to a proposal from Prawit that Japan and Thailand start working-level talks on the matter.

Prawit told Eto that his Southeast Asian country has great interest in Japanese defence equipment.

Prawit also said Thailand's ruling military junta is promoting a shift to a civil government. Eto expressed hopes for an early return to civilian rule.
