PM shuns peace dialogue with separatist groups

BANGKOK: Informal peace talks between the government and southern separatist groups under the umbrella organization of Mara Patani has been dealt with a big blow after Prime Minister Prayut Chan-ocha made it clear that the government will not talk with any organization or group which still resorts to armed rebellion and does not respect the law.

“…Thailand cannot negotiate with law breakers. It must be based on law and justice process. The negotiating team must ask them (separatist groups) whether they can accept this term or not. If not, the team must return,” said the prime minister when asked by a reporter about the lack of progress in the last round of peace dialogue in Kuala Lumpur.

The prime minister said he could not accept the separatist groups’ demand that they should be referred to as Mara Patani. “Why should we accept their demand of how they should be called? You know how many groups there are? You know why the talks were held abroad because they could not be held in the country,” he added.

Prime Minister Prayut made clear that his government would not submit to the demand of the separatist groups so long as they resort to violence and arms.

However, he maintained that the government was determined to solve all problems in a fair and equitable manner within the framework of the law.

Good luck with that P M

I doubt very much you would have on board

your team a kennedy or Ghandi type negotiator

If like you, ( a blunt shovel attitude )

Negotiating is not beating the opponent ,

but a task of trying to solve the puzzle,

It just maybe that you would be better off sending a woman

as chief negotiator, as they would tackle the problems in a different

manner than a thai thinking man.

just my opinion,

One may not be a supporter of the junta but appreciate during military firmness appropriate in these circumstances.


Claims of South Muslims are limitless. Accept to cede a finger today would give up arm tomorrow. And he rest of the body after, huh.


Besides Muslims are not mistaken when they hold power over a piece of land. they never cede a small ounce.

Said the frontman for the armed forces who conducted an illegal (at the time) military coup.

Perhaps he does not want peace in the South.

Visible threats are a godsend to weak and unpopular Governments.

Remember what the Falklands did for Margaret Thatcher's popularity?

A conflagration in the South would be a further distraction from civil rights issues and would cast the Army as being the protectors rather than the despoilers of the Nation. Don't be surprised if military action is ramped up to raise the stakes in the near future.

But this is the guy who back in end of 2014 promised that the insurgency would be over by 2015.

This is the same Junta who made the claims last week of several thousand defectors from the insurgency.

This is the same Junta who last year WERE sitting down and having dialogue with some insurgency factions.

He isn't so tough when the bad guys have weapons and bombs as opposed to text books and sandwiches.

That was the point at which I simply stopped reading the article.

“…Thailand cannot negotiate with law breakers. It must be based on law and justice process. The negotiating team must ask them (separatist groups) whether they can accept this term or not. If not, the team must return,”

It might help if the PM would publish his idea of what the "law and justice process" actually is, in words. I seriously doubt that anyone on the negotiating team knows what law and justice protocol he is talking about. But this is O.K. because you can talk about what this is for years without saying anything specific or doing anything.

Sometimes my wife has 3-hour phone conversation with a friend or her sister. I know enough Thai to pick up the bare basics. So when she finishes, I ask her what she was talking about and she says, oh, "talk about party for son friend becoming to monk." But why does it take so long, I ask? "Oooh Paa, cannot explain to you. Talk this, talk that, very complicated". A few days later it emerges that the conversation was actually about the politics involved with inviting certain people. But this subject, per se, was never actually mentioned during the course of the conversation.
