Britain's Hague calls on Thailand to restore democracy

LONDON - British Foreign Secretary William Hague on Thursday urged Thailand to restore a democratically-elected civilian government after its army chief seized control of the government in a coup.


"I am extremely concerned by today's coup," Hague said in a statement. "We look therefore to the authorities to set out a quick clear timetable for elections to help re-establish the democratic framework of governance." (Reuters)
