Karen State Border Guard Force General Secretary Col. Saw Chit Thu said that they were about 90 per cent successful in their negotiations for reuniting ethnic Karen armed splinter groups. “We tried to reunite 3-4 splinter groups of our Karen armed groups. We are very much pleased to see agreement and magnanimity in the reuniting of our entire ethnic Karen race being conducted by our Karen elders and leaders,” Col. Saw Chit Thu said.

KNU and Govt Plan to Resume Formal Peace Talks
The Irrawaddy, 29/11/2018
CHIANG MAI, Thailand — Myanmar government peace negotiators and the Karen National Union (KNU) have vowed to resume formal peace talks as quickly as possible, after they were postponed late last month. The KNU decided to pause formal peace talks in late October citing the need for further internal discussions in order to have meaningful participation in the peace process because of differences between their opinions and those of the government. The public and some stakeholders were worried that the halt in talks could trigger a restart of conflict in the region. Some members of the KNU are concerned that the National Ceasefire Agreement (NCA) has drifted from its original purpose, which includes ensuring equality, self-determination in building a democratic federal union and effectively implementing the issues agreed in the NCA text. The formal peace talks stalled until the KN...
