Aung San Suu Kyi reiterates armed ethnic groups shouldn’t rush NCA

Aung San Suu Kyi over the weekend appealed to ethnic armed groups in nationwide ceasefire agreement (NCA) talks with the government not to rush the deal, but work slowly on an agreement that would ensure long-lasting peace and stability Reuters reported on 6 September.

Her comments were made ahead of a meeting between President Thein Sein and ethnic leaders on 9 September in Naypyitaw to discuss a draft of the long-discussed ceasefire proposal.

"If the ceasefire agreement is the real agreement to stop fighting, I want to accomplish it as soon as possible. But it has to be real and true," Suu Kyi said in a speech in the town of Hopone.

Touring Shan State ahead of the Tuesday start of the election campaign, Suu Kyi also told farmers, students and shop owners that all ethnic groups should be included in an accord to end hostilities between the Myanmar army and the various armed groups in the country.

"The most important thing is that it's a long-lasting ceasefire deal. No fighting should break out again on the next day after signing of the agreement," said Suu Kyi.
