The South African government on Friday expressed concern over the political situation in Thailand, calling the change of government in the kingdom "unconstitutional. "

"South Africa condemns the coup and calls on all relevant parties to work speedily and through an inclusive process towards the restoration of constitutional order," the Department of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO) said in a statement.

Thailand's military junta chief Prayuth Chan-ocha declared a coup on Thursday, saying it was aimed at stopping further loss of life and preventing the conflict in the country from further escalating.

Prayuth declared himself as acting prime minister until someone can be found to serve the post full time.

"We are monitoring the unfolding situation and will continue to do so," said the DIRCO statement.

"All South Africans living in or visiting Thailand are advised to register on the ROSA system and stay away from all protest sites," it said. Endi
