Words in the news – Truce

truce  The noun truce refers an agreement between opponents or enemies to stop fighting or arguing, especially for an agreed period of time.

Prime Minister Surayud Chulanont yesterday called for a truce with National Legislative Assembly (NLA) member Prasong Soonsiri to clear the air following angry exchanges between them in the leadup to tomorrow’s ethics debate.

The government and the MILF agreed a truce in 2003, but the cease-fire is sporadically broken.

The shooting was the latest breaking of the newest truce agreed by the two rivals with Egyptian mediators, who for months have been trying to calm increasingly violent tensions between the two sides.

The agreement announced last week is the latest twist in a truce the companies, once bitter rivals, hammered out in 2004, when both companies vowed to make their products work better together.
