US ambassador to remain in post until term completed

US Ambassador to Thailand Kristie Kenney on Monday dismissed as untrue rumours that she was to be re-assigned to South Korea.

Kenney was answering questions posted to her Twitter account, @KristieKenney, regarding unconfirmed reports that she would be completing her term in Thailand soon and would be replaced by James Zumwalt, deputy assistant secretary of state for East Asia and Pacific affairs.

Rumours had gone viral on the social network, some of them saying she was being abruptly removed from the position due to her alleged intervention in the political tensions in Thailand.
