The Prime Minister also said that it is not realistic to govern the country based on demands from protesters, and urged protesters to resolve this dispute through dialogue under the rule of law.

The PM also mentioned the possibility of lifting the special emergency decree soon, if the protests are peaceful, to help ease the tension and to show the sincerity of the government to the people.
