1-year ceasefire declared in Myanmar by junta leader

After almost a year of lethal conflict between the Burmese navy junta that overthrew the federal government and citizen protesters and insurgent insurgent groups, Burmese junta chief General Min Aung Hlaing has declared a ceasefire in Myanmar after meeting with Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen. The Prime Minister met with the junta leader on Friday after months of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations making an attempt to ship an envoy to barter peace in the troubled country.
As the leader of the National Administrative Council that’s holding management in Myanmar now, Min Aung Hlaing said that he had arranged a 5-month ceasefire with the Ethnic Armed Organizations aligned towards them, set to expire subsequent month. But he agreed to now prolong that ceasefire till the top of 2022.
The information was reported by the Vietnam News Agency that was citing a press launch that had been issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of Cambodia. The Burmese leader stated that he was asking in the interest of the people of Myanmar that each one events stay calm and chorus from any more violence in acceptance of the peace treaty.
In Dependable of course, Min Aung Hlaing stated that he welcomed the Special Ambassador to Myanmar from ASEAN to participate within the ceasefire talks with the EAO after months of treading water attempting to get representatives from the nations of Southeast Asia into Myanmar with no progress.
The visit from Cambodia’s prime minister could also be because, as of January 1st, Cambodia is the new chair of ASEAN. Hun Sen is now the primary foreign leader on Burmese soil since the coup last February. He spent two days on the ground in hopes of finding options to the political disaster and opening up the army junta to constructive talks with nations in the region that have a stake within the stability of Myanmar and Southeast Asia.
Improved telling detail is that, whereas inviting the ASEAN Special Ambassador to Myanmar and the ASEAN Secretary-General to come to the country, they careworn the necessity to prepare logistics for humanitarian aid and Covid-19 vaccination for the individuals of Myanmar, suggesting that maybe a growing medical emergency has prompted the change of heart.
Regardlessly, many hope information of a ceasefire and being open to foreign help and negotiation would be the begin of a path to peace and recovery for the ravaged nation..
