Khun Myat Tun told Kaowao that, “In order to have evidence, we signed the agreement with Shan State Minster for Security and Border Affairs Col Aung Thu.”

The peace agreement was signed in Taunggyi Township, capital of Shan State and Khun Myat Tun said that "we agreed to a ceasefire because we wanted to solve the political conflict through political dialogue".

PNLO will open three liaison offices according to the signed agreement, in Taunggyi, Mauk Mae, and Hsi Hseng townships.

PNLO and the peace delegation from the government agreed to meet next month with the Union level government. There will be several issues to be discussed at the next meeting such as elimination of opium, army bases, and code of conduct that have to be followed during the ceasefire.

PNLO formed on December in 2009 and it has about 200 troops that are active in Shan State and Kayah State.
