BANGKOK, June 13 (Reuters) - Thailand's central bank governor said on Thursday he was not worried about recent moves in the baht and would ensure stability in the currency but not resist market forces.
The Bank of Thailand sold dollars to support the baht last week, Governor Prasarn Trairatvorakul told reporters.
'The central bank will monitor the baht from changing too fast but will not break the market's direction,' he added.
However, he said the baht was not more volatile than other Asian currencies and moving in line with global markets.
The baht was around 30.92 per dollar, having fallen 1 percent so far this year.
