Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva on Monday again refused to dissolve the lower House of parliament as the anti-government red-shirts have demanded.

Abhisit was responding to a question of Veera Musigapong, the chief red-shirt negotiator, who asked the premier how he would say to the red shirts' proposal of dissolving the lower House of parliament within 15 days.

"I don't think the House dissolution can end the problems," Abhisit told the red-shirted core leader.

But, Jatuporn Promphan, another red-shirt negotiator, told the prime minister that dissolving the House paving the way for a new general election will end the on-going political problems.

The prime minister said he has viewed "the House dissolution is to escalate the problems," since some people have disagreed with the House dissolution.

The second round of their talks started at 18.10 p.m. local time (11:10 GMT) at the King Prajadhipok's Institute in capital Bangkok.

The ongoing talks are being attended by Abhisit, his secretary- general Korbsak Sabhavasu, and ruling Democrat Party Deputy Secretary-general Chamni Sakdiset from the government side, as well as three core leaders of Veera, Jatuporn, and Weng Thojirakarn from the red-shirted side.
