Thailand's Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva Wednesday ended his two-day official visit to Bahrain, the National News Bureau of Thailand (ANT) under the government's Public Relations Department reported on Wednesday.

The Thai leader is scheduled to arrive at Thailand on Wednesday night.

Earlier, Abhisit said in Bahrain that after he returns to Bangkok, he is going to ask the red-shirted leaders again to hold a third round of peace talks.

In a related development, red-shirted core leader Nattawut Saikua said in Bangkok that if the prime minister does not change the time frame to dissolve the lower House, a mass protest planned on April 3 will be prolonged until April 6.

The anti-government red shirts and the government have had the different view on the time frame for the House dissolution.

The red shirts have insisted the House can be dissolved by Prime Minster Abhisit within 15 days and it will be the only solution to the country's ongoing political conflict.

However Prime Minister Abhisit has proposed that it could be possible to dissolve the lower House by the end of the year.

Nattawut said the red shirts won't hold anymore talks with the government if the time frame is not changed.

Meanwhile, Abhisit said the two-day visit to Bahrain has strengthened bilateral ties.

Among his activities there, Abhisit witnessed signing a memorandum of understanding by the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) and the Board of Trade of Thailand to establish bilateral cooperation on food security and food supply.
