First day of meeting on resolving political crisis ends inconclusively

BANGKOK, May 21 -- No conclusion was reached in today's first meeting of the groups in political confrontation and conflict chaired by Army chief Gen Prayuth Chan-Ocha.
 
In his capacity as director of the Peace and Order Maintaining Command (POMC), Gen Prayuth called a meeting between political rivals to end the months-long political deadlock.
 
The rivals met at the Army Club on Vibahvadi Road in the afternoon.
 
After two hours of meeting, the gathering was dismissed at about 4pm and Gen Prayuth told the seven groups involved in resolving the crisis to review the proposals and options presented at today's meeting to bring the country out of its political impasse.
 
Deputy army spokesman Col Winthai Suvari told a press conference afterward that the gathering has conducted in a friendly atmosphere.
 
All sides agreed to return peace and normalcy to the Thai public as soon as possible, he said.
 
Forty persons representing seven groups attended today's meeting.
 
Col Winthai said that Gen Prayuth wanted answers from the groups tomorrow when they reconvene at 2pm at the same location. (MCOT online news)
