    EU Cancels Visits, Halts Deal to Protest Thai Coup

     
    The European Union is suspending all official visits to and from Thailand and shelving important agreements, to protest last month's military coup.

    The EU said Monday it is putting on hold the signing of an agreement to deepen political and business ties with Thailand "until a democratically elected government is in place."

    The 28-nation bloc's foreign ministers are urging the coup leaders to enable a swift return to democracy through fair elections, abolish censorship and free all political prisoners.

    The EU is warning it will keep all cooperation under review for now "and will consider further possible measures" depending on how the situation in Thailand unfolds.

    The bloc has also canceled a negotiation round on a free trade agreement with Thailand initially planned for July, and suspended all further talks.
