    U.S. to Resume Military Aid to Thailand

    WASHINGTON — The U.S. said Feb. 6 it would resume military aid to Thailand suspended in the wake of the 2006 coup, after a democratically elected government was unveiled in Bangkok.
    The U.S. suspended about $24 million in military aid in protest at the ouster of Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra in a bloodless coup in September 2006.
    The aid cutoff involved foreign military financing, international military education and training, and peacekeeping operations. Washington maintained aid for counterterrorism, combating weapons of mass destruction and fighting communicable diseases.
    Deputy U.S. Secretary of State John Negroponte “has determined and certified to Congress that a democratically elected government has taken office in Thailand, removing legal restrictions on assistance to the Government of Thailand imposed following the September 2006 coup,” said Tom Casey, a State Department spokesman.
    “We congratulate Thailand’s new cabinet on its inauguration, and the Thai people on their success in re-establishing an elected government,” Casey said.
