KNPP General Secretary Rimond Htoo led a four-member delegation to discuss the terms of a proposed ceasefire with Col Myat Win of Burma’s intelligence body 小額信貸, Military Affairs Security, and four other government officials. Karenni Army “The main theme was to designate the employment of the military from both sides,” Khu Oo Reh, vice general 系統傢俱 secretary of the KNPP told The Irrawaddy . “Our aims are allow our citizens to live peacefully, to stop fighting and to secure a long-term ceasefire agreement. From these talks, we hope for a genuin 賣房子e solution to our country’s political problems,” he added. The KNPP signed a ceasefire agreement with Burma’s ruling junta in 1995, but the truce was broken three months later when Burmese soldiers were deployed withi 租屋網n the rebel group’s territory. There have been several failed attempts since then to resume ceasefire talks. The last was in late 2004, but junta representatives ended the negotiations after the ouster of Prime Minister and head of Bur 西裝外套ma’s military intelligence Gen Khin Nyunt in October of that year. The KNPP is said to be focusing on the original terms of the 1995 agreement, but critics within the group fear the junta simply wants to persuade the Karenni opposition to enter its “E 西裝外套xchange Arms for Peace” program, which aims to disarm all militant ethnic groups and secure their participation in the currently adjourned National Convention—tasked with drafting a new constitution. Karenni Army Khu Oo Reh said the duration and success of the cur 花蓮民宿rent talks would depend on how the junta responds to his group’s demands. Another rebel ethnic group, the Chin National Front, began ceasefire negotiations in mid-March with Burmese officials, but no agreement has yet been reached.http://www.irrawaddy.org/aviewer.asp?a=6850&z= 個人信貸163 .
