US unimpressed by year-long road map to elections

Washington -- The United States has dismissed a plan laid out by Thailand's military chief to delay elections for more than a year to allow time for political reforms.

"We know that they have announced a, quote, 'road map toward democracy', but with scant details included," State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Saturday.

She insisted that Washington believed the best path forward was "to set a timeline for early elections and to facilitate an inclusive and transparent electoral process".
