Myanmar: Preliminary peace deal with Mon rebels

The state-run Myanma Ahlin reported the government has agreed to free imprisoned Mon rebels.



Yangon: Myanmar`s state media say the central government has reached a preliminary peace agreement with a rebel group belonging to the Mon ethnic minority.

The state-run Myanma Ahlin reported on Monday that the deal was agreed over the weekend with the New Mon State Party. Similar peace agreements have been reached in recent months between the government and other ethnic groups, including the Karen, Shan, Chin, Wa and Kokang minorities.

The government and the Mon rebels reached an initial ceasefire earlier this month after state-level mediators held talks with the rebels.

On Saturday, both sides secured that deal and agreed to hold talks again within 45 days.

The paper said the government also agreed to free imprisoned Mon rebels.
