US calls on Thailand to lift restrictions, restore Democracy

US Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday called for Thai junta to lift restriction on political activities and speech.

The junta should restore civilian rule and return quickly to democracy through free and fair election.

"In Thailand, a close friend and ally, we are disturbed by the setback to democracy and hope it is a temporary bump in the road," Kerry said.
