Representatives sit down for discussions regarding the 21st Century Panglong Peace Conference.

A COORDINATION meeting was held at the National Reconciliation and Peace Centre in Yangon yesterday to discuss the organisation of the 21st Century Panglong Peace Conference.
The meeting focused on how to amend the Framework for Political Dialogue within the framework of the Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement to suit the coming Panglong conference.
Dr Tin Myo Win, chairman of the Second Subcommittee for Preparation of the 21st Century Panglong Conference, briefed those in attendance on what State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi had instructed and the outcomes of the talks held in Chiang Mai earlier this month, saying that the talks focused on inviting non-signatories to the NCA to the conference.
First Subcommittee Secretary-1 Dr Salai Lian Hmung Sakhong quoted the state counsellor as suggesting separate agenda for the peace talk and a civil society forum.
The meeting drew seven representatives from eight ethnic armed groups which have signed the Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement. On the government side, eight delegates led by Lt-Gen Ya Pyae joined the meeting.
According to Secretary U Hla Maung Shwe, the 21st Century Panglong Conference is expected to be held in late July or August and attract ethnic armed groups who are yet to sign the agreement.
