Lawyers representing government and victims of the Marikana tragedy have agreed to meet again next month.

The two parties met in Sandton north of Johannesburg on Friday, following months of tension between them.

Both parties have agreed that compensation for those that the August 2012 tragedy has affected must be accelerated.

Thirty-four mineworkers were killed at Lonmin Platinum Mine in Marikana in the North West during a confrontation with police following a violent unprotected and protracted strike.

Advocate Dumisa Ntsebeza has been representing the families of the deceased.

"Everybody is interested in expedition of the resolution of all the issues, that may be canvassed by any of the parties."

The lawyer for the Presidency Advocate Jeremy Gautlet says both parties are working to speedily address the issues.

"Actually, on both sides as regards the claimants and government, we are trying to move as fast as is humanly possible. It has been four years but in terms of the claims being instituted, it has only been a few months. The claims could not be instituted until the Commission had delivered its report."
