U.S. Embassy Statement on NCA Signing

We welcome the signing today by two additional ethnic armed groups, the New Mon State Party and the Lahu Democratic Union, of the Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement.  We recognize that this is but one of the many steps on a long road to sustainable peace.  We hope that, by committing to engage in dialogue, all parties can continue to move towards peace and creating a federal union that protects the rights of all communities in Myanmar.
