Hanoi (VNA) - The second meeting of Myanmar’s Peace Conference will run until May 29, extending for one more day compared to previous schedule.

Facts discussed by representatives during the conference will be submitted to the Union Peace Dialogue Joint Committee (UPDJC) for consideration and then the agreed points will be included in a union agreement.

Meanwhile, seven Northern Alliance non-ceasefire signatory armed groups left the conference on May 27 without reaching agreements but all accepted the idea of going through further dialogue.

With the aim of uniting all ethnic groups in Myanmar and building a democratic union through dialogues, the Peace Conference of Myanmar, also known as the 21st century Panglong Peace Conference, plans to reach 21 deals through political negotiations between the government and ethnic armed groups.

The Nationwide Cease fire Accord (NCA) is scheduled to be signed during the event, which is participated by State Counsellor San Suu Kyi, Deputy Commander in chief of Myanmar Armed Forces Soe Win and 15 armed groups, including eight signatories to the NCA and seven non-signatories.

The first conference, held in late August 2016, drew the participation of 1,800 delegates who discussed a national political dialogue framework aimed at ending conflicts between the government’s military and ethnic armed groups in the past seven decades.-VNA
