Bout will get fair trial: Thailand
Earlier the Russian Foreign Ministry summoned the Thai ambassador over allegations that the rights of Bout were being violated.
Bout was arrested in Bangkok on March 6 at the request of the United States.
Washington is seeking his extradition on charges of selling weapons to terrorists.
Viktor Bout formally asked the Russian government to take measures to secure his release, and Russia’s Foreign Ministry pledged it would protect Bout’s rights.
