Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva on Thursday discounted the news about exiled former premier Thaksin Shinawatra's plan to visit Cambodia to meet the opposition Puea Thai party MPs.

According to Mr Abhisit, Mr Thaksin had been travelling frequently, adding he can come back to Thailand and no one will stop him. He said the government also wants him to return.

In addition, the premier said he was informed that Japan will not allow Mr Thaksin to enter because he is a convict.

During Mr Abhisit's visit to Japan from Thursday to Saturday, he will enter talks with Japanese leaders and businessmen to restore their confidence to Thailand and to promote tourism and investment after the political situation has improved.
