An ideal atmosphere conducive to the peace negotiation process will be to be able to really silence the guns nationwide and to include all warring parties, that are still left out in the cold.
In other words, and to be precise, to let all Northern Alliance, including the Federal Political Negotiation and Consultative Committee (FPNCC) members to become a part of the peace negotiation process, implementing all-inclusiveness.
It is not appropriate to be hurling insult to the civilian government and likewise also to the ethnic armed organisations, as a whole, by the Commander-in-Chief Min Aung Hlaing, at the 21st Century Panglong – Union Peace Conference that just finished recently.
Whether peace-making process will progress and move forward or not will depend on the political will and accommodative attitude of the Commander-in-Chief and the top brass that is near to him.
Like SNLD Vice-chairman Sai Nyunt Lwin said at the conference, if all stakeholders can place the welfare of union first by giving it a priority and loving the common national identity, and putting the love of one’s ethnic identity second, peace and reconciliation could be achieved.
Equally important is what Sai Nyunt Lwin said: “Nothing will be lost (for the Bamar) by giving equality to the ethnic nationalities.”How very true!
