WHY DELEGATES GET TRAVEL COST PAID FOR ATTENDING CONFERENCES ??? UNFC host historic multi-party conference in Chiang Mai

July 31, 2013

“Normally, when a meeting like this is attempted, we have to consider covering travel expenses for the attendees,” said Hkun Okkar, a spokesperson for the conference. “In this case, we were surprised to find out most of the groups were willing to cover expenses on their own.”

THIS IS NOT CORRECT-   THEY LOST THE SPIRIT.

AND WHY THEY ALWAYS NEED INTERNATIONAL SCHOLARS ? THEY SHOULD LEARN BY THEMSELVES !!!

In an unprecented show of cooperation, delegates from 150 ethnic political parties and armed groups currently active in Myanmar met in Chiang Mai, Thailand last Monday to foster dialogue on the country’s pressing ethnic issues and government peace processes, as part of a three-day session hosted by the United Nationalities Federal Council (UNFC).

The session ran from July 29 until July 31, and marked the first time representatives from the majority of Myanmar’s political parties involved in the 1990 and 2010 general elections came together under one roof.

Expectations of the assembly committee were further surpassed with the presence of the multi-party Peace and Democracy Front (PDF), which was established in 1989 following ceasefire agreements between the majority of its members and government forces. Since its creation, the PDF, which mostly consists of groups active in northern Myanmar, has kept its association with other ethnic parties to a minimum.
