The Union Peace Conference-21st Century Panglong will resume on 24th May, and all participants of the second meeting will make efforts for reaching consensus for a fundamental policy at the meeting.
The announcement was made by U Zaw Htay, the Director-General of the Office of  the State Counsellor, following a work coordination meeting held in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday on implementing the Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement.
The  work coordination meeting also called on those organisations which have not yet held national-level political dialogues to step up efforts to draw up specific procedures for unclear matters related to resolutions of the national-level political dialogues.
The participants of the meeting also decided yesterday to discuss the Joint Monitoring Committee’s matters at the Union Peace Dialogue Joint Committee, as they reached beyond the framework of UPDJC and  submitted them to the Joint Implementation Coordination Meeting (JICM) after discussion, he added. At the meeting, they also agreed on several issues to be jointly coordinated by both  sides during the period from the singing NCA to reaching Union Agreement.
The JICM also agreed to form working groups during the period and JMC agreed to settle the disputed issues including demarcation between the Tatmadaw and the RCSS. Both sides also agreed to make more efforts for inclusiveness of the peace process based on NCA paving the ways for non-signatories to include in the peace process.
JICM will also form a joint group to discuss a deadlock for formation of a joint monitoring committee in Chin State.
“There are agreements reached between the government and ethnic armed  organisations, and of these, some agreements remained to be implemented and they will be discussed at the meetings held every two weeks at the National Reconciliation and Peace Centre”, said U Zaw Htay.—Myanmar News Agency
