Hanoi (VNA) – Outcome of Myanmar’s three-day political dialogue at national level which has ended in Taunggyi, southern Shan state will be submitted to the second meeting of the 21st Century Panglong Peace Conference, scheduled for May 24.

A total of 57 papers, submitted by representatives of signatory armed groups to the Nationwide Ceasefire Accord (NCA) and political parties, were discussed at the dialogue.

They focused on various areas related to politics, economy, land, environment and natural resources protection.

As part of Myanmar’s peace process, national level-political dialogues were held in Tanintharyi and Bago regions, southern Myanmar, from January 1. Outcomes of the dialogues will be submitted to the second meeting of the Panglong Conference.

Myanmar's previous U Thein Sein government and eight other armed groups signed the NCA on October 15, 2015, and the first meeting of the Panglong Conference was held in Nay Pyi Taw in August 2016, four months after the new government led by the National League for Democracy (NLD) took office.
