BANGKOK, May 22. /ITAR-TASS/. The army leadership in Thailand said a military coup had occurred in the country, Commander of the Thai Ground Troops General Prayut Chan-O-Cha said live on local television on Thursday.
Thai army put power in the country under its control, added the general who declared about introduction of the martial law in the country.
“Talks between political rivals turned out to be futile,” the commander of the Thai Ground Troops said.
Troops have earlier detained participants in talks on settlement of current political crisis which the Thai army leadership had organized. Representatives of anti-government demonstrators, the pro-government Red Shirt movement, the opposition Democratic Party and the ruling party Pheu Thai participated in talks. Participants in the meeting were taken away from the place where talks were held in the unknown direction, Thai television reported.
