Position Statement of KNU on Current Situation in the Country

By Karen National Union  •  December 4, 2012
  • The KNU reaffirms deeply its appreciation of effort by current Burma (Myanmar) government and its processes for securing ceasefire and peace with the armed ethnic organizations.
  • The violent suppression by Myanmar authorities of the ongoing people’s movement relating to Letpadaung Taung Copper Mining Project should never have happened.
  • Similarly, while effort is being made to halt the war and secure peace in Kachin State, there are the heightening of offensive momentum by Myanmar Army and the burning down of the sanctuaries of the IDP.
  • In the time when effort for national reconciliation and peace is being made, such appalling actions have caused great concern with regard to future prospect for peace.
