Chiang Mai (Mizzima) – Vice Snr Gen Maung Aye, number two in the Burmese military junta hierarchy, is likely to wind up his visit to Shan State on Friday, sources in the army said.
During the week-long visit, which began on Monday, on top of Maung Aye’s agenda was the issue of transforming ethnic ceasefire armed groups into a Border Guard Force.
Maung Aye arrived in May Myo on Thursday and is expected to return to Naypyitaw shortly.
