Justice: Is the USA Agreement to Service Thai Fighter Jets, F-16, legal by USA Law?

A local press, Bangkok Post, reports US Ambassador Kristie Kenney met Thai air force chief ACM Prajin Juntong in Bangkok on Thursday evening and confirmed Washington would go ahead with a service update for some of Thailand’s F-16 fighter jets. . Air force spokesman AM Monthol Satchukorn said Mrs Kenney paid a courtesy call on ACM Prajin and discussed economic cooperation between Thailand and the US. The air chief marshall is the deputy chief of the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) which staged the May 22 coup and ended the Yingluck Shinawatra government.
