Signs of possible conciliation by both parties appeared Sunday as Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva agreed to negotiate with the Red Shirt leaders.

The time for the meeting is to be confirmed, Prime Minister's Office Minister Sathit Wongnongtoey said but initially, Red Shirt leaders agreed to meet the PM at King Prajadhipok’s Institute for talks to be broadcast live on TV.

The prime minister had earlier said he would not parley with anti-government protesters seeking to oust his government under an  intimidating and pressuring atmosphere as tens of thousands demonstrators rally outside his temporary office at a military base.

In his announcement which was telecast live on television, Mr Abhisit said the Red Shirt protesters of the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) said they would send their  representatives to discuss ways to end the political deadlock at the 11th Infantry Regiment with him on Sunday.
