Thai king called on PM Abhisit to 'work with honesty' in 1st public remarks since protests

Thailand's revered king finally has spoken for the first time - his first public remarks since the end of the deadly street protests more than a month ago. He called on Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva and his new cabinet ministers on Monday to 'work with honesty'.

During a 1992 uprising the king summoned military and protest leaders who, according to protocol, crawled towards him on their knees in dramatic televised scenes which effectively brought the violence to an end.
