1-year ceasefire declared in Myanmar by junta leader

After almost Freebie of lethal conflict between the Burmese army junta that overthrew the federal government and citizen protesters and insurgent rebel groups, Burmese junta leader 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 chief on Friday after months of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations making an attempt to send an envoy to barter peace in the troubled country.
As the chief of the National Administrative Council that is holding control in Myanmar now, Min Aung Hlaing said that he had arranged a 5-month ceasefire with the Ethnic Armed Organizations aligned in opposition to them, set to expire subsequent month. But he agreed to now prolong that ceasefire till the tip of 2022.
The news 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 chief stated that he was asking in the interest of the folks of Myanmar that all events keep calm and refrain from any extra violence in acceptance of the peace treaty.
In a shocking change after all, Min Aung Hlaing stated that he welcomed the Special Ambassador to Myanmar from ASEAN to take part in the ceasefire talks with the EAO after months of treading water trying to get representatives from the countries of Southeast Asia into Myanmar with no progress.
The go to from Cambodia’s prime minister may be as a end result of, as of January 1st, Cambodia is the model new chair of ASEAN. Hun Sen is now the first international leader on Burmese soil for the rationale that coup last February. He spent two days on the bottom in hopes of finding options to the political crisis and opening up the military junta to constructive talks with countries within the region that have a stake within the stability of Myanmar and Southeast Asia.
One telling element is that, whereas inviting the ASEAN Special Ambassador to Myanmar and the ASEAN Secretary-General to return to the nation, they confused the need to arrange logistics for humanitarian aid and Covid-19 vaccination for the folks of Myanmar, suggesting that maybe a rising medical emergency has prompted the change of heart.
Regardlessly, many hope news of a ceasefire and being open to overseas help and negotiation will be the begin of a path to peace and restoration for the ravaged nation..
