It's not banned but the regime's top men are hung up on the magazine's reference in the article to Gen Prayut as "Little Sarit", the 1960s dictator.

Give the military regime some credit. At least it has the sense not to ban the Asia edition of <i>Time</i> magazine with Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha on the cover.

If it could, however, it probably would not mind inviting the magazine's editorial team for a coffee and "attitude adjustment" session.

It's a known fact that Gen Prayut is not that friendly with the media. He has given few exclusive interviews, if any. Talking with Time must have been something special, a move that would boost his standing, domestically and internationally.
