Junta understands US embassy's decision: Winthai

The decision about who would attend the 4th of July celebrations in Bangkok were made in Washington, deputy junta spokesman Winthai Suvari said Friday.

He said the junta also understood that the US Embassy in Bangkok had to be careful about public functions at this period of time, adding that each country had its own rules and traditions on how they should behave in public.

The US Embassy marked independence day on Thursday night, but the guest list for the celebration did not include top military leaders. However, former members of the Yingluck Shinawatra Cabinet attended the event.
