THE incoming government would be able to implement the peace process more successfully, participants of the meeting of non-signatories to the Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement announced in a statement.
The fact that they would cooperate with the new government emerged following the general election and the new government’s participation in the nationwide political dialogue, Union Minister U Aung Min told the Pyidaungsu Hluttaw on Tuesday.
He noted that representatives had pointed out that it was necessary to abide by the terms and conditions of the agreement.
He said that the ceasefire agreement is aimed at national reconciliation, solidarity and the people’s interests.
He added that the government held talks with 16 armed groups first and then the number of armed groups increased from 16 to 21 but the government has further opened the way for the remaining armed groups to join. The session approved the truce agreement.
