The plan was announced after Lertrat discussed with the anti- government core leaders for over two hours at the main rally site Rajprasong area.

According to the plan, the peace talks would be taken part by three sides: the government, the anti-government core leaders, and a group of senators as the mediator.

Lertrat's remark was confirmed by Senate Speaker Prasopsuk Boondej, who told a television that his attempt to arrange the peace talks this morning had failed, the Bangkok Post's website reported.

Prasopsuk was scheduled to meet with the "red-shirt" leaders at the Rajprasong area at 09:00 a.m. to move ahead with the planned peace talks.

"It was planned that after discussion with the leaders of the United front for Democracy against Dictatorship, I would talk to the prime minister on the phone to report the progress," he said.

The Senate Speaker said further "but the attempt had failed because I could not reach both anti-government leaders and the prime minister."
