UPWC denounces establishment of new brigade by KIA

UNION Peacemaking Working Committee has denounced the establishment of the 6th Brigade by the Kachin Independence Army (KIA), warning that the extended establishment will have a negative effect on the government’s peace process.
The announcement released yesterday added that the establishment does not serve the effort toward internal peace.
The KIA has established its new 6th Brigade in Mongbaw, Mongkoe and Phaunghsai, which were previously controlled by the Burmese Communist Party (BCP) in northern Shan State, on 26 February 2016.
The formation comes while the government of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar is implementing a nationwide peace process, which is intended to ensure national reconciliation and national development and bring an end to armed conflicts, said the announcement.—GNLM
