Thailand's PM vows to restore normalcy quickly   2010-04-10 00:28:10 FeedbackPrintRSS

BANGKOK, April 9 (Xinhua) -- Though the government could not prevent the anti-government "red-shirts" from recent unlawful activities, the government has vowed to attempt further to restore normalcy, Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva said in a live television speech Friday night.

His statement was made after the "red-shirts" stormed into the yard of Thaicom satellite firm, demanding the uplink satellite station to resume the signal transmission of their TV channel, People's Channel (PTV).

The Thaicom later agreed to reconnect the signal after the confrontation that left altogether 22 injured, including one person with a serious head injury.

But, speaking from the Emergency Operations Command, Abhisit said the fight has not been over yet as he has insisted the government and security personnel "can not be discouraged".

Although the "red-shirts" were successful in invading the Thaicom station, the government and involved security officials with the rule of law will continue to solve the country's political problem, he said.

The government "will move forward" to solve the problem in a bid to bring peace back to the country quickly, Abhisit said.

"I am confident that if we stick to righteousness and protect laws, finally we will win," the prime minister said.
