Although the Bush Administration on Wednesday pressed for an end to violence in Thailand, U.S. officials have found that in the post-Cold War environment, there is not much Washington can do alone to influence events in Bangkok. Japan is now by far Thailand's largest supplier of foreign aid and investment. In 1990, Tokyo supplied about $419 million in grants and loans to Thailand, about 74% of Thailand's entire worldwide foreign 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.
