Title: Listening to Voices: Myanmar’s Foot Soldiers Speak
Date of publication: April 2014
Description/subject: "Soldiers explained that mutual respect between all parties is needed for the peace process to be successful. Mutual respect was often mentioned in relation to the need for adherence to ceasefire agreements, reports of breaches to ceasefire agreements and concerns about the sincerity of the peace process. Generally, foot soldiers identified the need for all parties to respect the terms and conditions of agreements equally. Soldiers expressed a desire to create stronger links between what is discussed and agreed upon in peace/ceasefire agreements and implementation. Specific points of contention included soldiers carrying arms outside of their demarcated territory when agreements restricted this movement. Soldiers voiced a need for Tatmadaw soldiers to ask permission before entering their territory. One KNU soldier expressed: “Tatmadaw soldiers bring arms when they come into our regions. Don’t we have the right to hold arms? We follow the rules”..."
