The government will call on a meeting with the Internal Security Operations Command (ISOC) to consider extending the Internal Security Act (ISA) if the talks with red-shirts fail, Deputy Prime Minister in charge of security affairs Suthep Thuagsuban said Monday.

Suthep's statement came ahead of the talks with anti-government red-shirts core leaders at 18:00 p.m. local time (11:00 GMT) at the King Prajadhipok's Institute in Bangkok, Thai News Agency reported.

In a bid to ensure security amid the continued mass rally by the red shirts, the ISA law has been imposed in Bangkok and Nonthaburi and Samut Prakan next to the capital until March 30.
