Yangon, October (2)
In order to achieve national equality, the Shan State Progressive Party (SSPP)’s proposal for the establishment of Burmese State was not accepted by the military leader, SSPP spokesman Lt. Col. Sai Su, who attended the peace talks, told the Than Lwin Times.
Representatives of the Shan State Progressive Party (SSPP), National Democratic Alliance Army (NDAA), United Wa State Army (UWSA) met with military chief Senior General Min Aung Hlaing during the second round of peace talks held by the Military Council on September 26.
The Shan State Progressive Party (SSPP) presented the topics of the formation of Burmese State, the drafting of the constitution of Shan State, and the establishment of a federal democratic union.
However, the military leader rejected one of those proposals, the proposal to found a Burmese State.
In addition, in the discussion, the provisions of the 2008 Constitution can be amended chapter by chapter and section by section, but in the current situation, the military council can only compile information and it can be amended only after the parliament is held after the general election, the SSPP spokesperson, Lt. Col. Sai Su said.
He said that the Shan State Progressive Party (SSPP) presented the constitutional reform issues at the four-day meeting, but could not discuss them thoroughly and only signed the agreement for the minutes of the discussion.
General Min Aung Hlaing, the military leader of the coup, declared that he would only offer the ethnic groups deserved federal rights at the meeting held in Nay Pyi Taw on September 27.
At present, the military council has opened frontlines almost all over the country and clashed with the Kachin Independent Army (KIA), Karenni National Progressive Party (KNPP), Karen National Union (KNU), Chin National Front (CNF), Ta’ang National Liberation Army (TNLA), Arakan Army (AA) and People’s Defense Forces (PDF).
