The United Nations on Tuesday praised a draft ceasefire deal aimed at ending the country's decades of civil war, hailing the text agreed between the government and an array of ethnic armed groups.
"For the government of Myanmar and 16 Ethnic Armed Groups to reach a ceasefire agreement after more than sixty years of conflict is a historic and significant achievement," it said in a statement on behalf of UN Special Adviser Vijay Nambiar.
A full agreement can only be signed after a conference of the ethnic armed groups for which no date has yet been set.
