Kachin want political solution with Burmese government

Fighting is continuing in Burma between the Burmese army and Kachin rebels in the north despite a ceasefire being struck last week.

There are growing international calls for an end to the violence.

Most of the fighting has centred around Laiza, where the Kachin state headquarters are based.

La Nan, spokesman for the Kachin Independence Organisation, told the BBC's Jonathan Head that they want serious political negotiations with the Burmese government.
