Officials from the State Administrative Councils National Solidarity and Peace Negotiation Committee (NSPNC) and the New Mon State Party (NMSP)  ratified an agreement reached on May 25, following  three days of negotiations. 

Details of the  agreement are not known, as discussions on some aspects have not yet concluded.

In his opening remarks on the second day of negotiations, NMSP Vice-Chair Nai Aung Min said, “the NMSP has started its armed struggle for national equality and self-determination. National peace equality and the establishment of a federal union with self-determination are key issues in the current peace process.” 

The meeting was attended by NSPNC Chair,  Lt-Gen Yar Pyae, Lt-Gen Moe Myint Tun, Gen Min Naung, NMSP Vice-Chairman Nai Aung Min, Joint Secretary Nai Win Hla, and Central Executive Committee member Nai Banyar Lae.

“The NMSP has consistently believed that political issues need to be addressed through political means. Only in this way can a lasting solution be found to the country’s problems. We believe that the only way to reach a new, peaceful and prosperous nation is to find a solution that will bring about a genuine solution to the conflict and dialogue with all stakeholders in the current conflict,” said Nai Aung Min.

During the week another agreement was reached between the State Administration Council and the Restoration Council of Shan State (RCSS / SSA) which was signed on 22 May.
