Observers say cease-fire talks between Burma's ruling junta and the rebel Karen National Union (KNU) appear to be going smoothly.
The parties continued to meet Tuesday in the Burmese capital Rangoon to work out a peace accord that would end more than 50 years of fighting .
The Karen group, led by Bo Mya, met with Burmese Prime Minister Gen Khin Nyunt on Monday, and had asked to meet with junta chief Senior General Than Shwe on Tuesday.
The KNU is the largest of the rebel groups still fighting against Rangoon's rule. The two sides tentatively agreed to a cease-fire in December, but fighting goes on. Information for this report is provided by AP and AFP.
