Yangon, 2 June—A conference of ethnic armed organizations began Tuesday in Law Khee Lar, Kayin State, to seek final approval on a draft peace deal between the groups and the Myanmar government.
The Ethnic Armed Organizations Summit from 2-6 June will discuss the draft National Ceasefire Accord approved in late March by the Nationwide Ceasefire Coordination Team, representing 16 ethnic armed groups, and the government’s Union Peace-making Work Committee in Yangon.
Leaders of all ethnic armed groups—including NCCT members and non-members—have been invited to the Law Khee Lar Summit.
According to sources, observers from the United Nations, including Mr Vijay Nambiar, the Secretary-General’s Special Adviser on Myanmar, the People’s Republic of China and Nippon Foundation’s Myanmar Liaison Office were present on the first day of the summit. GNLM
