The National Council for Peace and Order has cited three reasons to explain to the international community why the military seized power, NCPO spokesman Winthai Suwaree said Sunday.
He said the reasons have been conveyed to foreign countries via military attaches to Thai embassies.
The three reasons are:
1) Thailand has different situation and political environment to other countries.
2) The military has clear evidences and reasons to seize power. The evidences and reasons will later be shown to the international community.
3) Democratic ruling in Thailand has caused a lot of lives.
Winthai said the foreign countries would be reminded of what has been happening in the country and reminded that the Thai military always supported the democratic ruling.
He said those, who claimed their democratic rights, resorted to use war weapons and they attacked the communities in the capital.
He said the expression of democratic rights in Thailand was different from those in foreign countries.
