Rakhine conference focuses on regional security

The Emergency Coordination Centre (ECC) has planned to hold a Union level meeting on May 2 at the offices of the Rakhine regional government in Sittwe.

Officials of the ECC, delegations from the United Nations, and members of INGOs will attend the meeting in Rakhine State, according to the Ministry of Border Affairs.

The purpose is to discuss on coordination with international organisations in Myanmar and to help end the conflict in the region.  

The ECC was firstly meant to control clashes in Rakhine State, but now includes government personnel, Rakhine elders and members of the INGO community to help maintain transparency.

In addition, it is reported that the Arakan Army (AA) and the Arakan Liberation Party (ALP) have arranged to join forces. During Kyaukpyu Conference, designations from those parties said the AA is ready to protect the back door of Myanmar.

At present, security matters of Rakhine State should be prioritised as the destiny of Rakhine State affects not only on the Rakhine nationals but also the whole country.
