Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra told foreign media Saturday that she was still "open for talks" with the protest leader, Suthep Thaugsuban.

"I still leave all the doors open. And I am ready for talks with him," she said.

Saturday, the PM gave interviews to Reuters, the Wall Street Journal, Associated Press, Financial Times, and the Straits Times.

The government will, however, place all ministry offices under high alert Monday and they expect protesters to try to enter some of offices, including at Government House.

"It must end on December 9. If not enough protesters come out or if it doesn't succeed, all co-leaders will surrender themselves and will to be prosecuted under insurrection and other charges," Ekanat said.

"However, if a million [protesters] turn out as on November 24 then we are confident that there will definitely be change.

"If the government won't listen to the people, the PDRC will not give the government a chance any longer. This is the last demonstration and it won't be a picnic."
