Myanmar will hold another round of talks with Kachin rebels on Monday in a bid to end a conflict raging in the country's far north, a federation of ethnic minority groups said.
The two sides will attend an "emergency meeting" in the Chinese border town of Ruili to seek a breakthrough in the bloody conflict, Khun Okker, a spokesman for the United Nationalities Federal Council (UNFC), said on Sunday.
"China arranged it," he told AFP. "They (China) might want to give their views to both the KIA (Kachin Independence Army) and the Myanmar government."
