Mae Sot protests garbage dumping

MAE Sot municipality chief officer Panom Saengplaeng this morning (May 5) urged his Myanmar counterpart to take stern action against garbage dumping by Karen villagers living along the Moei River, reported.

According to Mr Panom, the problem remains unsolved despite his persistent talks with his Myanmar counterpart.

“The two countries share the same river, and both sides should keep it clean for our children and grandchildren,” he reportedly said.
