BANGKOK -- Thai lawmakers are giving themselves another stage to discuss a solution for the current political impasse, after having failed to come up with a convincing response to pro-democracy protesters during a two-day special parliamentary session that closed on Tuesday.

"The cabinet agreed to set up a committee to find a solution," Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha said during a news conference after a weekly cabinet meeting. "The committee will involve members of parliament, senators and various stakeholders."
