Mizzima Business Weekly - - CONTENTS - Soe Thu Aung

The Del­e­ga­tion for Po­lit­i­cal Ne­go­ti­a­tion (DPN) sec­ond leader Nai Aung Ma Nge said ne­go­ti­a­tions be­tween United Na­tion­al­i­ties Fed­eral Coun­cil (UNFC) and gov­ern­ment were very close to be­ing set­tled on their 8-point pro­posal for sign­ing the Na­tion­wide Cease­fire Agree­ment (NCA) as over two-thirds of th­ese points had been agreed. UNFC sent their 8-point pro­posal to gov­ern­ment and said that they would sign NCA if all th­ese points were agreed. Cur­rently, the UNFC’s ne­go­ti­at­ing team, the DPN, have agreed points num­bered 1 to 4 with the gov­ern­ment’s ne­go­ti­at­ing team, Peace Com­mis­sion (PC), they are con­tin­u­ing their ne­go­ti­a­tions on the four re­main­ing points. DPN sec­ond leader NaiAung Ma Nge said, “Point num­ber 5 has been fun­da­men­tally agreedto and point num­ber 6 was al­most set­tled. We have to con­clude our ne­go­ti­a­tion on point num­ber 7 a lit­tle bit more. So we have con­cluded and passed over two-thirds of our pro­posal.” The UNFC con­sists of four eth­nic armed or­gan­i­sa­tions which have not yet signed NCA, namely Arakan Na­tional Coun­cil (ANC), Lahu Demo­cratic Union (LDU), New Mon State Party (NMSP) and Karenni Na­tional Pro­gres­sive Party (NMSP).
