Peace Process

Mizzima Business Weekly - - ETHNIC NEWS ROUNDUPS -

The New Mon State Party (NMSP) and Lahu Demo­cratic Union (LDU) which signed the Na­tion­wide Cease­fire Agree­ment (NCA) on Fe­bru­ary 13 dis­cussed im­ple­men­ta­tion of the peace process with the eight other sig­na­to­ries in Chi­ang Mai on Fe­bru­ary 18 and 19. Spokesman for the eth­nic armed or­ga­ni­za­tions (EAOs), Pado Saw Tah Doh Mu, said they dis­cussed the Joint Im­ple­men­ta­tion Com­mit­tee Meeting (JICM) and in­clu­sion of new mem­bers in Union Peace Di­a­logue Joint Com­mit­tee (UPDJC). “We must hold JICM meet­ings in im­ple­men­ta­tion of NCA and then we must hold UPDJC meet­ings. We must se­lect their rep­re­sen­ta­tives to be rep­re­sented in UPDJC and so we dis­cussed how they could take part in these meet­ings. We will try to hold JICM and UPDJC meet­ings and ne­go­ti­a­tions with the other side,” he told Mizzima. Cur­rently 16 mem­bers from eight EAOs are rep­re­sented in the UPDJC and now it will be ex­panded with more mem­bers from the Mon and Lahu or­ga­ni­za­tions.
