“We want to work together with civilians to build a country-wide peace, to unite and to rehabilitate the whole country – not only for the Karen – we will meet with the President”.

On Wednesday July 22 preliminary discussions were held with the various political organisations to schedule their participation in the country’s peace building process. U Aung Min, a Vice-Chairman of the Union Peacemaking Work Committee and representatives of the
