Thai pm says ready to dissolve house if all conditions met

Bangkok (ANTARA News/Xinhua-OANA) - Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva on Saturday told foreign media he was ready to dissolve the House of Representatives and hold a new general election if all conditions are met under the reconciliation roadmap he offered, the Thai News Agency (TNA) reported.

Abhisit offered a five-point reconciliation roadmap to resolve the country`s political crisis on May 3, promising to hold a new general election on Nov. 14 if conditions are met.

Abhisit also briefed foreign envoys and representatives of international organizations based in Thailand on the recent cricis.

"I think, the foreign envoys have understood the Thai government`s clarification during the briefing," Abhisit said after meeting with the foreign envoys and representatives of international organizations.

Abhisit said actually all foreign countries have wished to have good trade and investment relations. Hence, they have shared a view that "stability is important since it is the key to support the trades and investments," Abhisit said.

In a bid to boost the international confidence, during the briefing, Abhisit focused on three main points: measures in dealing with the recent anti-government rally, urgent steps after the end of the rally, and rehabilitation and reconciliation.

The government followed international standard in dealing with the violent movement of the anti-government protestors, with the total attempts to avoid losses and damage, Abhisit said.

Prior to the security operations to disperse the protestors, peace talks were already attempted by the Thai government, but these failed since the anti-government core leaders refused the talks, Abhisit said.

The death toll from a series of violent clashes between the protestors and troops from March 12 to May 19 reached 88 as some 1,885 others were wounded. (*)
