- +

The next round of talks between authorities and separatist movements in the deep South is likely to be postponed, according to Barisan Revolusi Nasional (BRN) sources. 

The talks have been delayed several times already due to additional demands by the authorities and the unsettled matter of how many seats should go to separatists at the talks, the sources said.

Thai officials put off the latest round of talks, set initially for Oct 20, claiming it fell too close to the ninth anniversary of the Tak Bai massacre in Narathiwat. The next round is set on a preliminary basis for early next month.
