Myanmar junta says no negotiations with coup dissidents


BANGKOK, Oct 24 (AFP): Myanmar's junta on Saturday night (Oct 23) said it would not engage in talks with coup dissidents, including members of Aung San Suu Kyi's ousted government, after a loyalist said dialogue was necessary to save the country.

The South-East Asian nation has been in chaos since a February coup, with more than 1,100 killed in a crackdown on dissent, according to a local monitoring group.
