The Prime Minister Surayud Chulanont has said that Thaksin Shinawatra could return to Thailand. He went on to say it depended on whether Mr Thaksin would like to return or not and if he wanted to then the government would talk about his movements. If an agreement was reached between the Council for National Security and Mr Thaksin's family then he could come back.
Meanwhile Thaksins media comments continue to be blocked. According to the Bangkok Post Thailands main pay TV provider has said it will block an interview with deposed prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra that CNN plans to run this evening because of a request from the Council for National Security.
The government is also implying that a deal for his return must include an agreement as to what political role he will play after his return to Thailand
