Ethnic Armed Organizations (EAOs) which signed the Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement (NCA) presented their plan of inclusion for NCA non-signatory organizations in the political framework review to the government.
New Mon State Party (NMSP) central executive member Nai Aung Ma Nge told media that they presented this proposal to government at the 2-day meeting between government and NCA signatory EAOs held at National Reconciliation and Peace Centre (NRPC) in Yangon on February 17 and 18.
“But the strategy of Union Peace Dialogue Joint Committee (UPDJC) clearly states that review and modification of political framework can be done only after signing NCA. So, we must renegotiate on changing UPDJC strategy for reviewing the political framework,” Nai Aung Ma Nge said.
Advisor to the government’s Peace Commission (PC), Hla Maung Shwe, said that the presentation sent by NCA signatory EAOs must be discussed before making a decision.
Previously the NCA non-signatories attended UPDJC meetings held for review of political dialogue as observers.
