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.
