At the meeting, Union Minister U Kyaw Tint Swe said State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi had sent them, as she had a keen interest in Mon State’s national-level political dialogue.
On their part, they were present with due respect to the people of Mon State and NMSP. NMSP has agreed in the 14th UPDJC meeting to hold
national-level political dialogues in Ye Township, and a supervision committee was formed to successfully hold the national-level political dialogues.
The NMSP will have the opportunity to reveal the wishes of the Mon State nationals, said the Union Minister.
The Union Minister maintained that the outcomes and proposals made during this national-level political dialogue would be discussed and confirmed at the Union Peace Conference—21st Century Panglong third session, which was agreed at the 7th Joint Implementation and Coordination Meeting (JICM) to be held in Nay Pyi Taw by the end of April or early May. The UPDJC meeting had designated five main topics to be discussed at the Union Peace Conference—21st Century Panglong third session, namely, politics, economics, social environment, security, and land and environmental policy. Matters that were not submitted in the Union Peace Conference—21st Century Panglong second session were agreed to be discussed as priority matters in this session. The aim was to ensure NMSP’s race-oriented political dialogue at the national level in Mon State was successful, as it has signed the Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement (NCA). It was the responsibility of the government to assist the NMSP in holding this dialogue, as it had signed the NCA with full trust and understanding. If there were additional requirements, the NRPC would coordinate and provide assistance , said the Union Minister.
