Thailand and one of several Muslim groups south will open peace negotiations in Malaysia on March 28, a Thai official said Thursday.

Thailand and the Barisan Revolusi Nasional (BRN) insurgent group signed an agreement in Kuala Lumpur two weeks ago, pledging to open talks on ending a nine-year revolt by a number of shadowy insurgent groups that has claimed more than 5,500 lives.

Paradorn Pattanatabut, the head of Thailand's National Security Council, said a preliminary meeting was held on March 5 on the "conditions" for the talks, but more substantive dialogue would begin with the one-day exchange on March 28.
