BANGKOK, April 19 (Xinhua) -- Thai Amy chief Anupong Paochinda said Monday the meeting of high-ranking military commanders scheduled for the day was postponed to Friday.

Gen Witchaya Thephassadin na Ayuttaya, assistant army chief, told reporters that the meeting was put off as "things are not ready". No further explanation was given.

The military meeting was set to be held at 13.00 p.m. in the Thai Army Headquarters in Bangkok.

Anupong, who was appointed new emergency operations command chief to replace Deputy Prime Minister Suthep Thaugsuban, ordered on April 16 that military officers of the rank of major general and above should all attend the extraordinary meeting, believed to discuss ways out of the month-long standoff between the government and the anti-government red-shirt protesters.
