Former Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, the brother of the general election winner Yingluck, says reconciliation in the country is more important than his return after five years in exile.

Shinawatra said, "I am not in a hurry to go back, I want to see the reconciliation to happen first, if there is reconciliation and I will be part of the solution then I will be there, if I will be part of the problem then I will not be there. I am settled here."

Speaking from his exile in Dubai, he said the victory of the election belonged to the people. He said despite the losses of the current government, it is important to forget the past and look to the future. Earlier there were reports that Thaksin might seek amnesty from his sister Yingluck for his return. Asked about the exact role he would take if he went back, he insisted that he would only return if needed, perhaps as an advisor.
