BISMARCK, N.D. - Meetings continued Wednesday night about the future of the Dakota Access Pipeline protest camps.

Gov. Doug Burgum and Lt. Gov. Brent Sanford met with tribal leaders and representatives of the main camp to talk about emptying the camp before spring flooding. Another issue on the table was how the camp's population-growth will be stopped.

In a press release sent out Thursday morning, Burgum said he's committed to continuing the dialogue in the interest of reaching a safe and peaceful resolution to the situation.
