Statement on the Accusation of RCSS/SSA by Burmese Government Press Conference

By Restoration Council of the Shan State  •  August 15, 2011

With reference to the erroneous accusation of the Restoration Council of the Shan State (RCSS), the Shan State Army (SSA) by the government press conference mentioned in the state run newspaper, the New Light of Myanmar on August 13, 2011,

  1. The RCSS/SSA has no policy of using terror on the innocent people. The Burmese regime unfairly accuses and defames the RCSS/SSA in the press just because it is their enemy.
  2. The RCSS/SSA has no intention of doing so although it is capable of acting beyond what has been written in the press.
  3. The armed-conflicts have come into existence because of the Burmese chauvinistic nature, unfair treatment and the abrogation of Panglong Agreement which is the foundation of the Federal Union. Instead of taking the ethnic nationalities as their enemies and unreasonably accusing them of insurgents, it is now the appropriate time for true national reconciliation to reform the long lasting and peaceful Federal Union through the Panglong Agreement which guarantees equal rights and status among the ethnics.
