Bangkok, Thailand (AHN) – Thailand’s military-appointed Prime Minister Surayud Chulanont on Monday rejected rumors of a new coup, insisting the situation in the country does not warrant another military uprising.

Surayud made the statement a day after defense chief Boonrawd Somtas declared that another coup might be a possibility, depending on the political and economic situation in Thailand.

The premier said he has not heard of any movement within the military and said he does not believe in the threat.

He added he met with Boonrawd and the defense chief had not mentioned any coup brewing.

A bloodless coup in September last year toppled then-prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra.
