Allow me to clarify some points made in the article ''Where OIC was correct'' published in the editorial section on Dec 3. 

The main point about the OIC resolution is not whether the OIC was correct or incorrect, but whether the resolution provided a balanced and fair reflection of the government's efforts in the Southern Border Provinces (SBPs). Our regret is that the OIC resolution failed to reflect the sentiments of OIC member states which have generally been supportive of the government's efforts in the SBPs.

We had hoped that the OIC resolution would have included some acknowledgement, as expressed by the OIC Secretary General's Adviser in a joint press release issued at the end of his visit in May 2012, of the ''positive developments since the visit of the OIC Secretary General in 2007'' and that ''the policy of the Thai government is moving in the right direction''.
