Senator Lertrat Rattavanich, a retired general, on Wednesday called off the Senate's involvement in a plan to mediate peace talks between the government and the anti-government protesters.

"I will not today convey the message from the "red-shirts" to the government because it is too late as decision has been made to disperse the protestors," the Nation newspaper''s website reported.

The government might have no other option but to use force to disband the rally site after giving the"red-shirts" a plenty of time to end their protest, Lertrat said.

On late Tuesday, Lertrat said he was going to propose Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva to hold peace talks with the protestors '' core leaders.
