The KNU delegation met Senior General Min Aung Hlaing at Bayinnaung Garden in Naypyidaw on the 29th November 2014 from 2:00 pm to 4:30 pm.
The main objectives of the meeting were to reanalyze the Peace Process and discuss the current issues related to military affairs on both sides.
According to P’doh Saw Kwe Htoo Win, KNU General Secretary, "We held our bi-monthly meeting that we both agreed to at our previous meeting. The KNU raised issues that occurred since our previous meeting, such as the incidents between the DKBA and the Burmese Army, and the ongoing fighting in the North. We are concerned that these incidents may impact the Peace Process that is being implemented by President U Thein Sein’s government. We reanalyzed the Peace Process and pledged to find solutions and move forward together ".
Both sides plan to meet again; the date is yet to be confirmed.
