JOHANNESBURG Jan 24 (Reuters) - South Africa's Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union (AMCU) and executives of the world's top three platinum companies will resume talks next week to end a strike in the sector, the labour ministry said on Friday.

"They will sit down on Monday and talk, theoretically," spokesman Musa Zondi told reporters after several hours of government-sponsored mediation talks in Johannesburg.
