Prem doubts Suthep, Yingluck listen to him

Privy Council President Gen Prem Tinsulanonda Thursday expressed doubt that caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban would listen to him if he steps in to try to mediate the political conflicts.

"Do you think they would listen to me?" Prem asked back when a reporter asked him whether he would invite Suthep and Yingluck to a talk.

When the reporter insisted that Prem was loved and respected by both sides and no one would be able to mediate talks between the two, Prem replied: "I am no exception".
