Speaking before his departure, he said the mass rally by anti-government Red Shirt demonstrators during the past several days had not caused any anxieties among the public as the government remained able to control the situation.

Foreign investors are still confident in the government’s ability to  manage the rallies and prevent them from escalating, he said, adding that there is no reason for the government to dissolve the House of Representatives now.
