The opposition whips on Tuesday agreed their parties would not take part in any amnesty talks if they are again invited to participate by Deputy House Speaker Charoen Chankomol, Democrat MP Jurin Laksanavisit said.
Mr Jurin, chief of the opposition whip, said if the House of Representatives decided to deliberate amnesty bills there would be fresh conflict throughout the country.
Instead of pushing for an amnesty law, the government should concentrate on delivering its annual report to parliament and the people as required by the constitution, he said.
Mr Jurin said the opposition would on Wednesday query the government in the House about Defence Minister Sukumpol Suwanatat's meeting with Cambodian Deputy Prime Minister Tea Banh at Preah Vihear temple and the new round of the government's rice-pledging scheme.
