Thailand Seeks Arms Amid U.S. Sales Restrictions

Reuters reports that “Thailand is pursuing closer ties — and possible arms deals — with Russia, with relations between Thailand and its traditional partner, the United States, cooling in the wake of a May 2014 coup.”  

“Two Thai deputy prime ministers will travel to Russia just weeks after a visit to Bangkok by the powerful head of Russia’s security council, Nikolai Patrushev.”  

“On the table, officials from both countries say, are wide-ranging talks on trade and security cooperation, as Russia seeks to develop its position as an Asian power.”
