Japanese officials stood tough Thursday against criticism that their response to recent military violence in Thailand was weak-kneed, defending their cautious policies as more effective in the long run than U.S.-style actions to quickly suspend aid. "Cutting off aid may destabilize the country and harm the people it was meant to help," a Foreign Ministry official said, adding that Japan needs to be extra careful with Thailand, since Tokyo provides 74% of Thailand's total foreign economic aid.
