BANGKOK — Thai protesters occupying key areas of Bangkok vowed Sunday to fight until victory following a breakdown of negotiations and a televised appearance by the prime minister that offered no solution to the weekslong, sometimes bloody crisis.

Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva spoke in a nationally televised interview alongside the army chief Sunday, in an apparent effort to dispel persistent rumors of a rift between Abhisit and the military.

The broadcast came a day after Abhisit's rejection of a compromise offer by the so-called Red Shirts — who say the current government is illegitimate and are demanding new elections — dashed hopes that a peaceful way could be found to end the standoff.

"We won't go home until we win," a protest leader, Khwanchai Praipana, told supporters following Abhisit's appearance.
