The Thai Government and Muslim separatists agreed to conduct the second
round of their peace talks on April 29, according to the Joint Working
Group Peace Dialogue Process (IWG-PDP).

The
consensus was reached between representatives of the Thai Government and
the Barisan Revolusi Nasional (BRN) southern insurgent group, at the
first round of their peace talks in Kuala Lumpur , Malaysia , on
March 28.

During the one-day talks, the two sides
discussed ways to resolve violent incidents and restore peace in the
southern Thailand, where violence has occurred nearly every day since
the insurgency erupted in 2004, leading the death of more than 5.000
people to date.

Earlier, on February 28, the Thai
government, for the first time, inked an agreement to start peace talks
with BRN, which is one of the groups held responsible for the violence
in Thailand.-VNA
