Hoping to draw on China experience with the Uighurs, Burma Army chief General Min Aung Hlaing discussed Burma's military position. He said that he hoped that ethnic armed groups would disarm in their pursuit of peace, during a meeting with a Chinese diplomat, according to the military-owned Myawaddy newspaper. Min Aung Hlaing was offering his views on the stalled nationwide ceasefire process and the Kokang conflict along the Burma-China border during the meeting with China’s Asian affairs envoy Sun Guoxiang in Naypyidaw on Monday.
The Burma army is conducting a war against many ethnic minority groups in the country.
