We congratulate the people of the Kingdom of Thailand, our long-time friend and ally, for their robust participation in the July 3rd parliamentary elections. The choice of who will lead Thailand now rests with those representatives elected by the Thai people.

We look forward to working with the next Thai government to broaden and strengthen our alliance, which is based on shared values and mutual respect. The United States also looks forward to working with the opposition and non-partisan civil society, as we have always done.
