The Thai government has pledged to show its utmost tolerance in dealing with the widening street protests, Thai Foreign Ministry’s spokesman Sek Wannamethee said on November 28.

All government officials have been instructed to exercise maximum restraint when containing extreme protests, according to Sek Wannamethee.

The government is prepared to provide all necessary support to ministries and agencies whose work is obstructed by the protests and has urged them to continue their duties, he added.

The Centre for the Administration of Peace and Order (CAPO) under the Royal Thai Police said in an earlier statement that it will continue various actions necessary to keep peace and order but the use of force will be avoided and maximum restraint will be applied.

All individuals who forcibly entered and destructed government buildings will be held accountable by the law, it said.

Meanwhile, leader of the Thai Democratic Party Abhisit Vejjajiva said the party will continue its efforts together with demonstrators to overthrow the “Thaksin regime”.

In a televised statement a few hours after winning a vote of confidence in the parliament on November 28, Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra called on the demonstrators to end rally and hold dialogue with the government to find a way out of the political tumult, which she said causes the economy and the country to step back.-VNA
