Army chief Prayuth Chan-ocha broke his silence Thursday over an audio clip that cast the military in a controversial light, saying he has not made a deal to bring ousted prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra home.
Gen Prayuth insisted he has not even given thought to the matter because it was not part of his job.
"How could I make an agreement? You should ask the people who talked about it. I didn't talk about it," he said.
