“Formation of Supervision Committees for Political Dialogue at the National-Level for Kayin State, Taninthayi Region and Nay Pyi Taw Council Area

1. Armed conflicts which have been deep-rooted for long during the administration of the successive regimes cannot be solved successfully through the use of arms. Only when they are solved through dialogues, can sustainable peace be built. Similarly, once sustainable peace has been built, a Union based on Democracy and Federalism will be built. With a view to achieving these goals, the Union Peace Conference—21st Century Panglong 1st Conference was held in Nay Pyi Taw from 31st August to 3rd September.
2. Prior to the Union Peace Conference—21st Century Panglong 1st Conference and after the conference, political dialogue frameworks were reassessed. At the dialogues, not only national ethnic armed groups which signed the nationwide ceasefire agreement but also other remaining ethnic armed groups which had not yet signed the agreement were invited to attend the meetings. For those who deserve to take part in the dialogues to be included, authorities concerned are making arrangements, and simultaneously discussions to prioritize the conduct of political dialogues were made.
3. Due to the efforts of the representatives from the government, Hluttaw, Tatmadaw group, ethnic armed groups and political parties group which took part in the discussions on frameworks for political dialogues, discussions on working process of political dialogues at the national level, important frameworks and guidance for working process were approved by the Union Peace Dialogue Joint Committee.
4. Presently, in accordance with the guidance for working process of political dialogues at the national level and principles on political dialogue included in the framework of political dialogue, race-orientated political dialogue at the national level will be held in Kayin State, region-orientated political dialogue at the national level in Taninthayi Region and subject-orientated political dialogue (CSO Forum) in Nay Pyi Taw Council Region.
