Junta and five non-combatant NCA signatories discuss holding peace conference


Nay Pyi Taw, June (28)

The five NCA signatories, who have never waged war against the military council, have discussed holding a peace conference with them, reported in a military-controlled newspaper.

The five ethnic armed organizations that have signed the Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement (NCA) have been holding talks in Nay Pyi Taw since June 26 at the invitation of The National Solidarity and Peacemaking Negotiation Committee (NSPNC).

Among the participants were representatives from the Pa’o National Liberation Organization (PNLO), the Democratic Karen Benevolent Army (DKBA), the Karen Peace Council (KNU/KNLA-PC), the Lahu Democratic Union (LDU) and the Arakan State Liberation Party (ALP).

On the first day of the meeting, June 26, they discussed the points to be amended in the Constitution (2008) and the implementation of the points agreed upon in the previous discussions.

In addition, they also highlighted the issues of holding a peace conference, regional stability, and the annihilation of narcotic drugs and will continue to hold the meeting on June 27 and 28.

Than Lwin Times tried to reach the spokespersons of some of the EAOs participating in the peace talks by phone, but there was no response.

Political analysts remarked that there is no possibility of a peace conference as the fight to eradicate the military dictatorship is gaining momentum almost across the entire country.

At the end of April 2021, three groups of seven NCA-signatories and three non-NCA signatories attended the peace talks invited by the military leader Min Aung Hlaing at least four times.
