In a statement issued on Nov. 10, 661 Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) urged Finland and Switzerland to cease their “sham peace efforts” and disinvite the military’s Peace Committee to the Martti Ahtisaari Peace Foundation in Helsinki, Finland.

“We are appalled to learn that Switzerland and Finland are pursuing these initiatives that, in our view, allow the junta to perpetuate its war of terror,” stated the CSOs. Switzerland, in collaboration with the Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue and Swisspeace, organized a Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement (NCA) workshop in Naypyidaw from Oct. 16-18.
