NMSP forms peace delegation

 
(Mizzima) – New Mon State Party Vice Chairman Nai Rao Sa will lead a delegation for a second round of peace talks at Mawlamyaing in Mon State on February 1.
 
NMSP Secretary-General Nai Hong Sar“Our posture is the same as before,” NMSP Secretary-General Nai Hong Sar told Mizzima. “We want to talk about a nationwide cease-fire. Stopping the fighting is not the main thing. The main thing is to hold a political dialogue.”

On January 20, NMSP chairman Nai Htaw Mon said in his closing speech at the 6th Mon National Conference that it was not difficult to agree to a cease-fire with the Burmese government, but it was difficult to hold a political dialogue.
 
Two member groups of the United Nationalities Federal Council (UNFC), the Chin National Front and the Karen National Union, have signed cease-fire agreements with the Burmese government.
 
“The UNFC turned into a paper tiger, so it’s not easy to promote the interests of all ethnic people,” Nai Hong Sar told the Mon National Conference.  
 
The UNFC was formed on February 17, 2011, as an ethnic alliance against the Burmese government’s military attacks and political pressure. The UNFC comprises six dedicated member groups and six associated member groups.
 
Before the NMSP has peace talk with the Burmese government the NMSP delegates will seek advice from Mon political and social organizations inside Burma, Nai Hong Sar Pon Khaing said.

NMSP central executive committee members met at party headquarters at Ye Chaung Phya and formed the delegation on Tuesday.
 
Delegates are party Vice Chairman Nai Rao Sa, central executive Nai Tala Nyi, central executive Nai Lari Ga Kaung, central committee member Nai Aye Mon (Mawlamyaing District chairman), central committee member Nai Banyar Lel (Dawei District chairman), central committee member Nai Aye Ka (Thaton District secretary) and NMSP central military committee Lieutenant Colonel Nai Banyar Channun.
