BANGKOK, July 17 (UPI) — Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva told a visiting U.S. official he hopes to hold an election in early 2011, a spokesman says.

Abhisit and Under-Secretary of State William Burns discussed Thailand’s political situation during a meeting Friday, the Bangkok Post reported. Panitan Wattanayagorn, the spokesman, said Burns told the prime minister the United States supports efforts at reconciliation.
