Former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra has called on Thai people to reconcile their differences for the sake of the country in a video posted online marking his 64th birthday on Friday, July 26, 

The video was uploaded to the video-sharing website YouTube by his son Panthongtae "Oak" Shinawatra on Thursday night.

In the video, Thaksin said he was ousted by a military coup when he was 57 years old and had stayed abroad. Two years later, he returned briefly to Thailand.
