Coalition Chart Thai Pattana Party chief adviser Banharn Silpa-archa on Tuesday said he will broker for troop withdrawal only after the anti-government group unconditionally ends their rally by Tuesday (May 18), Thai News Agency reported.

Mr. Banharn is Thailand's former prime minister.

Earlier, the Resolution of Emergency Situation (CRES) said troops will continue with operations to besiege the main rally site Rajprasong area in central Bangkok, aiming to pressure the anti-government protesters to end their over-two-month long rally.
