Somchai says he met Thaksin in Myanmar

Ex-premier Somchai Wongsawat on Monday confirmed he had met his brother-in-law Thaksin Shinawatra in Myanmar last week.

Somchai said he and Thaksin, who spent one day trip there, made a merit together.

He said had briefed Thaksin about political turmoil in Thailand and Thaksin gave him moral support.

Legal advisor of Thaksin Noppadon Pattama denied Thaksin went to Myanmar for business trip.

Noppadon said Thaksin insisted that the way of democracy is the way of future so the election has to proceed until it complete.

"Thaksin said all problems must be resolved at negotiation table. However, he did not want to give interview but preferred to stay low-profile," Noppadon said.
