Caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra insists farmers will receive payments for their pledged rice, saying her government is duty-bound to pay the money owed to them. 

Ms Yingluck, also caretaker defence minister, said the government has not ignored the plight of unpaid rice farmers, but it faced legal limitations as a caretaker government.

She has asked the Commerce and Finance ministries and other relevant agencies to accelerate their work and she was hopeful the agencies could find a way to ease the farmers' plight.
