Our Ambassador attended the most recent Panglong Peace Conference in July 2018 and met with a range of parties to the National Ceasefire Agreement. He discussed the peace process with Burma's Minister of the Office of State Counsellor on 9 August. Government, military and parliamentary leaders met the leaders of the ten Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement-signatory ethnic armed organizations on 15 and 16 October, ahead of the next Panglong Peace conference. The UK will sustain its support for negotiations towards a peace settlement whilst ensuring the Burmese military understand that their conduct will continue to come under international scrutiny.
