[On Sunday, Udomchai defended his actions. He said his side was ready to talk, but the Kuala Lumpur trip was meant for a meeting with Abdul Rahim only and not with any specific group] MARA Patani sees the attitude of refusal to confront the dialogue team as unacceptable and (we) suspect a hidden agenda when he only wanted to meet me

Re: Resignation as the head of delegation of peace dialogue of Patani Consultative Council.
As mentioned above:
Since Patani Consultative Council being formed, I, Ustaz Sukree Hari has been given the trust and a mandate as a head of delegation of peace dialogue on behalf of the Patani Consultative Council with the Thai government to find solution to the never-ending conflict in Patani and I believed that I have done well. Alhamdulillah.
With that said, I am going to resign from the post effective Wednesday.
Thank you, wassalam

The Thai government is not sincere about resolving the conflict in Patani. The negotiations held thus far were a tactic for wasting Malay Patani people’s time [referring to the three southernmost provinces of Thailand and the ethnic Malay Muslims who live there]. Whatever was agreed together at the negotiating table, the Thai side was not willing to sign, and that is clear proof that the Thai side was just pretending in the negotiations, playing for time
[The negotiations were dogged by allegations that rebel leaders in touch with fighters on the ground were not participating in the talks and did not support the effort. But Sukree denied this] BRN is BRN … the issue about the real or not real BRN [Barisan Revolusi Nasional] is an issue that aims to divide BRN in the eyes of the people of Pattani, so that they lose confidence in BRN
