The Pentagon said Saturday it was canceling an ongoing military exercise and planned visits by officials in the wake of a coup in Thailand.

"While we have enjoyed a long and productive military-to-military relationship with Thailand, our own democratic principles and US law require us to reconsider US military assistance and engagements," spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby said in a statement.
