Armed forces boss spurns run for PM

SUPREME COMMANDER URGES DIALOGUE

- +

Supreme Commander Tanasak Patimapragorn is optimistic that dialogue will bring about a solution to the political conflict, as he poured cold water on rumours he would run for the prime minister's job."They had better take this crisis as an opportunity to initiate talks as soon as possible," Gen Tanasak said. 

"To have dialogue doesn't necessarily mean the protests will have to stop. Instead, it will mean all sides could achieve a win-win situation."

He was apparently referring to Friday's grenade attack on a People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) march on Banthat Thong Road which left one person dead and dozens wounded.
