The Union Joint Ceasefire Monitoring Committee (JMC-U) decided yesterday to begin demarcation discussion starting from the state-level Joint Ceasefire Monitoring Committee (JMC-S) and approved rules which would be exercised at the JMC-S offices.
Out of 45 Standard Operating Procedures (SOP), 10 were approved at previous meetings and two at the 9th meeting which ended yesterday at the National Reconciliation and Peace Centre in Yangon. During the three-day meeting, the members of the JMC-U discussed Terms of Reference-TOR, the budget for JMC-U and matters on arrangements for a visit to the Philippines, conducting mine clearance trainings and demarcation for the troops. “We will make further discussion on clearance of mines and the work is scheduled to launch in Kayin State,” said Col Wunna Aung, Secretary-2 of the JMC-U.
