Storyline


Myanmar government and two more ethnic armed groups signed the Nationwide Ceasefire Accord (NCA) in Nay Pyi Taw Tuesday.

The join-in signing of the New Mon State Party (NMSP) and the Lahu Democratic Union (LDU) to the government's NCA has brought the total of such signatories to 10 since the first signing with eight armed groups on Oct 15, 2015.

Speaking at the signing ceremony, State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi expressed welcome for the two armed groups which she said have taken a bold step in laying down a corner stone for the emergence of a democratic federal union in the future.

She maintained that the NCA is not the end of the peace process but the beginning of the process, the beginning of political dialogue and armed conflict reduction and through the dialogue and negotiation, political issues are to be resolved.

She invited the remaining armed groups to come to the political negotiation round table under the government's future program, while continuing to work with organizations which have already signed the NCA to consolidate the ceasefire process.

Myanmar Senior General Min Aung Hlaing said at the ceremony that the NCA is a result of serious consultation and careful consideration, and it is a contribution to the national development instead of surrender.

NMSP and LDU, which are members of the United Nationalities Federal Council (UNFC), are the first two armed groups signing the NCA in time of the incumbent government, led by the National League for Democracy (NLD).

"Due to unsolved problems in terms of military and loss, some other ethnic armed groups will not sign the NCA before the problems are settled. But NMSP does not have such problems, so after we sign, we will also encourage other ethnic armed groups to sign the NCA," said Naing Thi Ha, general secretary of NMSP.

Meanwhile, delegates of Myanmar political parties and social organizations, as well as delegates from several countries that facilitate the peace talk also signed on the NCA as witnesses.

Sun Guoxiang, special envoy of China on Asian affairs, was invited as a witness from China.

"China now is among rich festive atmosphere. Chinese government sending me here at this time fully indicates China's attention to the Myanmar peace process, as well as our firm support of the Myanmar peace process," said Sun.

Several other groups which have not yet signed the NCA include the Kayinni National Progressive Party (KNPP), the Arakan National Council (ANC), the United Wa State Army (UWSA) and the Kachin Independence Army (KIA).
