- +

Peace talks on the conflict in the South will continue despite the fact the Thai government has not accepted the Barisan Revolusi Nasional's (BRN) five demands, Deputy Prime Minister Gen Pracha Promnok said on Friday. 

Officials from Malaysia, which is facilitating the peace talks, and the BRN's Hassan Taib have agreed that the negotiations must continue, in particular to discuss the detail of the BRN’s demands for curbing violence, said Gen Pracha.
