PEACE PROCESS

Mizzima Business Weekly - - ETHNIC NEWS ROUNDUPS -

If the Tat­madaw does not ex­tend its uni­lat­eral cease­fire time past an Au­gust 31 dead­line it will be im­por­tant to re­con­sider how to move the peace process for­ward, Gen­eral Yawd Serk, the tem­po­rary leader of Peace Process Steer­ing Team (PPST), said at the first day of the PPST meet­ing held in Chi­ang Mai, Thai­land. Gen­eral Yawd Serk, who also leads the Restora­tion Coun­cil of Shan State, a sig­na­tory to the na­tion­wide cease­fire agree­ment, said the peace-mak­ing process couldn’t be con­sid­ered com­plete with only 10 NCA sig­na­to­ries. Gen­eral Yawd Serk said that al­though the NCA was signed al­most four years ago the road to build­ing a fed­eral union was still dim. He added that it was im­por­tant to work harder so that they can de­velop ba­sic fed­eral poli­cies that can con­trib­ute to the build­ing of a strong fed­eral union.
