Gen. Anupong Paochinda said Wednesday the suggestion came in an urgent afternoon meeting with high-level officials.
The crisis boiled over Tuesday when the alliance's members stormed Bangkok's international airport, forcing outbound flights to stop.
Anupong also asked the protesters to leave the airport and ruled out the possibility of a coup.
