The civilian-led government of Aung San Suu Kyi has made striking a peace deal a key pillar of her administration, but fighting has instead intensified in recent months, with tens of thousands displaced by conflict.

With only a day to go before the end of the second round of peace talks under her watch, officials said little headway had been made on the federalism or increased autonomy that are key demands for ethnic minority groups.

“There will be a less good result than people are hoping for,” Zaw Htay, spokesman for the president’s office, told reporters on Sunday, adding “we did not get agreement on the matter of seceding”.
