EAOs chose not to engage in a dialogue with military council

February 22, 2021

HURFOM: Following the  February 1st coup, the military junta dissolved the National Reconciliation and Peace Center (NRPC) and on February 2, 2021, informed the Ethnic Armed Organization (EAOs) they must discuss the future of the peace process with a newly created military committee.

In response the ten ethnic armed organizations who signed the Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement (NCA)  decided not to recognize the newly created committee.   Instead they held a Peace Process Steering Team (PPST) meeting by video conference on February 19, 2021.

“We’ve made a very important decision in the meeting. That “at the moment, we will not engage in a political dialogue with the military council.”, said the Team Leader General Ywet Sit.

The EAOs have declared they support the Civil Disobedience Movement (CDM) and requested the military not use violence towards the peaceful protesters.

A representative from the Kachin Independence Organization said they are also not  acknowledging the State Administrative Council.
