Pentagon to Hold Joint Exercise With Thailand's Military Junta

Sarah Lazare, staff writer

The Pentagon is moving forward with plans for a massive exercise with Thailand next week, signaling direct U.S. cooperation with the military junta that runs the county under martial law.

Following Thailand's coup last May, the U.S. suspended military aid and canceled some joint exercises, to signal opposition to the military takeover of the government, which is now headed by Gen. Prayuth Chan-ocha.
