THE Kachin State Hluttaw has put on record a proposal calling for an end to ambushing among local armed groups.
U Naw Li, alias Zakhaung Kham Ral, of the constituency-2 of Waingmaw township, brought the proposal to the Kachin State Hluttaw’s emergency meeting on Wednesday.
In his proposal, U Naw Li made an appeal to all armed groups in Kachin State to stop ambushing one an other, saying that skirmishes among them would prove an serious obstacles to the success of the ongoing 21st Panglong Conference for peace. Local people trapped in the area of armed conflicts fall victim to landmines and other offensive weaponry, he added.
The proposal was put on record at the request of the minister for Border Affairs and Security.
“I do welcome and support it because I want the ongoing tension between the army, KIA and KIO to die down so those factions can work together for the success of the peace conference.” Col Thura Myo Tin said in support of the proposal.—Mot Jay (Myitmakha)
