BANGKOK, July 7 (TNA) – Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva on Wednesday conceded that political demonstrators are likely to return to the capital’s streets later this year, but pledged his government will do its best to control the situation.

The premier expressed concern after his cabinet revoked the state of emergency in five provinces but maintained the law in 19 provinces including the capital, Bangkok, based on intelligence reports of concerned agencies that underground movements are still in readiness to ignite further disorder.

Mr Abhisit said the demonstrations may return before the end of this year as said by Deputy Prime Minister Suthep Thaugsuban but the government will try to reduce the condition of conflicts and enforce the law against those who are likely to incite violence as well as create better understanding among the public so that they will not be misled.
