‘When the Guns Stop, the Talks Can Begin’

12 Jan 2013

Last week, a Karen National Union (KNU) delegation led by the ethnic armed 
group’s new chairman, Gen Mutu Say Poe, traveled to Naypyidaw 
to meet President Thein Sein and the commander-in-chief of Burma’s armed forces, 
Vice Snr-Gen Min Aung Hlaing. KNU General Secretary Padoh Saw Kwe Htoo Win, 
was also a part of the delegation. On Thursday, he spoke to The Irrawaddy‘s 
Nyein Nyein by telephone to discuss his views on the high-level meetings held on
 Jan. 5-6, and on Burma’s ongoing peace process.
