REFILE-Trump reinstates duty-free trade for some Ukrainian goods, suspends it for some Thai goods

(Adds dropped word in headline)

WASHINGTON, Oct 25 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday reinstated duty-free trade for certain items from Ukraine, but suspended it with Thailand.

In a presidential proclamation, Trump said he had previously suspended duty-free treatment for certain Ukrainian goods because Ukraine was not adequately protecting intellectual property rights, but he was now ending the suspension because the country had made progress on that front.

In a separate letter written to U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the president of the Senate, Vice President Mike Pence, Trump said he had suspended duty-free treatment of certain Thai products because the country had not taken steps to "afford workers in Thailand internationally recognized worker rights."
