PR unit chief Surachat Chitchang said yesterday the three rounds of talks held between the National Security Council (NSC) and the BRN since early this year appear to have done little to dampen violence in the region.

Maj Gen Surachat said several fatal attacks on community leaders and local politicians since early this month proved the talks were failing.
