Following China's mediation efforts, Myanmar's military recently held peace talks with the Myanmar National Democratic Alliance Army, the Ta'ang National Liberation Army and the Arakan Army in China and reached agreement on a number of arrangements, said a spokesperson for the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, noting that the groups also reached agreement on a temporary ceasefire and maintaining the momentum of dialogue.

The remarks were made by spokesperson Mao Ning when asked to confirm China's role in the talks.

Mao said that China supports the peace process in northern Myanmar and has provided support and facilitation for dialogue and contact between relevant parties. Since fighting broke out on October 27 in northern Myanmar, China has been making relentless efforts to promote talks to end the fighting and deescalate the situation.

The conflict in northern Myanmar has been notably deescalating, which not only serves the interests of relevant parties in Myanmar but also helps to ensure peace and tranquility at the China-Myanmar border area. China hopes that relevant parties in Myanmar can speed up efforts to implement what has been agreed, exercise maximum restraint, actively ease the situation on the ground, promptly manage sporadic confrontation events and together realize the soft landing of the situation in northern Myanmar, according to Mao.
