THAILAND: Full bilateral ties only after democracy restored: US envoy

GOVT TRYING TO ACHIEVE BALANCE, ENSURE STABILITY, PM SAYS IN RESPONSE

FULL bilateral cooperation between Thailand and the United States would be resumed only after democracy has been restored, Daniel Russel, the US assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific Affairs, said yesterday.

Good relations with Thailand were a valuable asset for the US, said Russel, adding he hoped to see prosperity and stability return to the Kingdom.

At a meeting yesterday, he told Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha that he understood the situation in Thailand, but retained concerns over human-rights issues and democracy.
