Vice President Dr Sai Mauk Kham, who also chairs the Union Peace Making Working Committee, made a speech at the coordination meeting on implementation of the Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement held at the Hotel Max in Nay Pyi Taw on Friday.
Also present were Vice Chairmen of the committee U Aung Min and U Thein Zaw and members, defence services representatives Lt-Gen Ye Aung, Maj-Gen Tun Tun Naung, Maj-Gen Min Naung, representatives from the Hluttaw, leaders and members of eight ethnic armed groups and officials from Myanmar Peace Centre.
In his speech, the vice president said that it was the first step of the long journey for implementation of the NCA and reiterated that the government would realize the terms of the agreement according to their timetables while efforts were being made to invite ethnic groups who have not signed the NCA to participate in the peace process.
Then the vice president expressed his hope that the meeting would result in formation of JICM with leaders from both sides.
The JICM would later form JMC and UPDJC, which would cooperate for the implementation of the peace process, the vice president added.
The vice president also said he believes both sides would be patient enough to overcome unpredictable challenges in the implementation of the NCA.
In conclusion, the vice president urged attendees to implement the NCA in order to establish a democratic federal state.
On behalf of the ethnic armed groups, P’doh Saw Kwe Htoo Win extended greetings, saying that all would work to form JMC and UNDJC at the meeting.
Participants discussed duties and responsibilities and future tasks of JICM  and formation of JMC and UPDJC.
