A Thailand-based separatist group said Monday it would join the peace talks with the government only if they are conducted formally according to international standards and norms.
“However, such a peace process must be dignified and sincere in its pursuit of peace, not a peace process used as a form of political subterfuge in order to deceive and undermine the strategy of the Patani Malay people,” Barisan Revolusi Nasional Melayu Patani (BRN) said in a statement. 
The dialogue must also include mediators and observers from other countries, said the group, which the government accuses of orchestrating the current wave of violence in the deep South. The group said it did not reject the peace negotiations but was in fact prepared to achieve reconciliation through peaceful means.
