BANGKOK, Sept 6 (TNA) – Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva said Monday that he has not yet been contacted by the opposition Puea Thai Party to discuss the proposed national reconciliation plan, but asserted he is ready to talk on the condition that there must be no violence.

The premier made the remarks after the opposition party last week offered a five-point proposal seeking talks with the government to end the ongoing political conflict which intensified since the bloodless coup which toppled ex-prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra on September 19, 2006.

Deputy Puea Thai Party leader Plodprasop Suratsawadee said all concerned parties– which may include Mr Thaksin–must come to the negotiating table, saying he believes reconciliation talks would be held by the end of this year with no changes to the Constitution.

The prime minister, who just returned from his trip to Shanghai, said he has not been contacted by the Puea Thai Party, saying as far as he knows, the opposition party has not yet reached a conclusion on the matter.
