Peace talks between the Thai government and the anti-government group, which was planned to be mediated by Senate Speaker Prasobsuk Boondej, has been completely ruled out, secretary-general to the Prime Minister Korbsak Sabhavasu told local media Wednesday.

The Thai government is determined to disperse the anti- government rally on Wednesday, Korbsak said in a television interview, the Bangkok Post's website reported.

What the anti-government protesters should do now is to stop burning and surrender, Korbsak said.

"The "red-shirts" must immediately stop setting fire in the capital. Their leaders wanted under arrest warrants must enter the judicial process, and after that the government will move ahead with the national reconciliation road map proposed by the prime minister," Korbsak said.
