Hanoi (VNA) – A three-day political dialogue at the national level is underway in Taunggyi city of Myanmar’s eastern Shan state, prior to the upcoming second meeting of the country's 21st Century Panglong Peace Conference.

According to official reports on April 24, present at the dialogue were representatives of some signatory armed groups to the Nationwide Ceasefire Accord (NCA), including Pa-O National Liberation Organisation (PNLO) and Restoration Council of Shan State (RCSS) and other political parties.

On the first day of the dialogue, representatives from the self-administered regions and zones delivered reports related to politics, economy, land issues and natural resources and environmental conservation.

Minister of the State Counselor's Office U Kyaw Tint Swe called the dialogue “a milestone of the state" and a step taken by the people of Myanmar toward peace.

Myanmar has been holding region- and race-oriented political dialogue across the nation in southernmost Tanintharyi region since January.

The outcome of all regional dialogues will be submitted to the upcoming second meeting of the Panglong Peace Conference in May. The meeting aims to discuss and seek solutions for peace and reconciliation of the country.-VNA
