An anti-government protest leader said on Sunday the movement was ready to negotiate with Thailand's government to end a deadly crisis, but only if troops were immediately withdrawn from Bangkok's streets.
Nattawut Saikua said the red shirts' only other condition to enter into dialogue was for representatives of the United Nations to moderate talks.
"We have no other condition. We do not want any more losses," he told supporters at the main protest site."We want the UN to moderate it because we do not trust anyone else. There is no group in Thailand that is neutral enough."
