Thailand rejects UN mediation to end clashes

The Thai government rejected calls by anti-government protesters on Sunday for U.N.-supervised talks to end three days of deadly clashes between demonstrators and the army, a government spokesman said.

Earlier, a Thai protest leader said the demonstrators were ready to enter negotiations with the government if the talks were mediated by the United Nations and if the army agreed to a ceasefire.

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 U.N. to moderate it because we do not trust anyone else. There is no group in Thailand that is neutral enough."
