Deputy Prime Minister Chalerm Yubamrung yesterday met Islamic spiritual leader Chularatchamontri Aziz Phitakkumpon to discuss ongoing violence in the South. 

Speaking after the 30-minute meeting, Mr Chalerm, who has been assigned by the government to bring an end to the southern violence, said he had asked Mr Aziz to help relay the government's message regarding solutions to the southern conflict to people in the far South in Yawi _ the Malay dialect spoken by Muslims in the region.

The message will be taped and broadcast on the television channel run by the Southern Border Provinces Administration Centre (SBPAC).
