Press Release Regarding The Decision Of The Thai Armed Forces To Suspend The Constitution And Take Control Of The Government , 24.05.2014

No: 161, 24 May 2014

Turkey, as a matter of principle, is opposed to the dismissal of governments that have come to power by popular vote, by non-democratic methods. In this context, we regret the decision of the Thai armed forces to suspend the constitution and take control of the government.

Turkey has relations of close friendship and cooperation with Thailand and we expect that Thailand will return to democracy, which has been interrupted, as soon as possible.
