Israel Calls For Reinstatement of Thai Democracy

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs released a statement on Tuesday, expressing its concern over the military coup in Thailand last Thursday that granted army chief Gen. Prayuth Chan-ocha "full powers of government." "Israel holds Thailand’s constitutional democratic institutions and civil rights in the highest regard and hopes the military leadership will reinstate these at the earliest," read the statement.

The notice added that the ministry "will continue to closely monitor the situation on the ground, with a view to ensuring the safety of Israeli nationals in Thailand, and desires that parties involved refrain from any form of violence."
