Indonesian government officials and rebels from Aceh province have held a third day of peace talks in Finland's capital, Helsinki.
The two sides were meeting Thursday without mediators in what organizers said was a positive atmosphere.
The government and the Free Aceh Movement are trying to agree on a lasting peace for Aceh, which was badly hit by last December's tsunami.
Rebels said before the series of talks began that they will demand that Indonesian troops cease all anti-insurgency operations in Aceh before discussing a solution for self-government.
Aceh has been the battleground between government forces and armed rebels since 1976, when the rebels launched their campaign for independence.Some information for this report provided by AFP and AP.
