The scheduled speech by ousted Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra on Tuesday was canceled at the request of the Thai delegation, a Thai diplomatic source told Xinhua.

Thaksin had originally scheduled to speak to the UN General Assembly on Wednesday, but as reports of a coup attempt in Bangkok, the time was switched to Tuesday evening.

However, after reports of a swift coup d'etat in Bangkok, Thaksin's speech was eventually canceled.

After a bloodless coup d'etat, a military source said Tuesday that Thaksin had agreed to resign, and that General Surayu Zhulanong, a privy counselor to the King of Thailand, would be the new prime minister of a transitional military government.
