YANGON, Myanmar, Nov. 1 (UPI) -- Ethnic conflicts in the state of Rakhine in Myanmar can be resolved through negotiations in a "win-win" solution, the minister for information says.

U Aung Kyi, in an interview Wednesday with the Indian newspaper The Hindu, said the last reports of violence there were last Friday. The United Nations reported at least 89 people were killed in clashes between Rohingya Muslims and ethnic Rakhine Buddhists.

The minister said negotiations can be carried on "without outside interference." He said the result will be a "win-win situation for all stakeholders."

"The officials concerned and authorities are working hard. They are negotiating with the people, holding talks and working hard for regional peace and stability," the minister told the Hindu.
