Yangon, May (28)

Agreements between the military council and some ethnic armed groups through peace talks will not resolve the political crisis, the political analysts criticized.

The military council met with the Restoration Council for Shan State (RCSS) and the New Mon State Party (NMSP), and agreements have been signed for future work.

These agreements include the establishment of a multi-party democracy and a federal union; national unity and the establishment of union peace, and the pursuit of regional interests.

Political analyst U Than Soe Naing said the agreement with the military council would not be an effective step in resolving the current political crisis in Myanmar.

“They all avoided discussing the current political and military crisis in Myanmar. They have traditionally signed the NCA. I think they focused on self-interest, and they have made peace with the military and signed the agreement paved by the military council. I do not believe that these agreements will lead to any effective and progressive steps towards peace in Myanmar,” said U Than Soe Naing, a political analyst.

The peace talks between the military council and some ethnic armed groups did not address the current political crisis, but focused on self-interest.

The Restoration Council for Shan State (RCSS)and the New Mon State Party (NMSP), which signed an agreement with the junta after attending the talks, are hopeful that the junta will implement the agreements.

“None of this agreement will materialize. Time will tell on the current political and military conflicts and crises between the people and the regime at some point. One side will win. If the military council wins, they will do what they say. But if the people-led Spring Revolution wins, the plans and procedures of the military council will not work,” U Than Soe Naing added.

He also criticized that some ethnic armed groups that focus on self-interest without prioritizing peace in Myanmar, will fail to play a role in Myanmar’s politics.

Peace talks between the military council and ethnic armed groups have led to discord among ethnic groups, and drawn criticism.

Ten ethnic armed groups, that have not fought with military regime, have registered to attend the peace talks proposed by the coup junta. So far, three groups have met with the regime.
