U.S. Embassy Statement on Kachin Fighting

By US Embassy  •  July 24, 2015

The U.S. Embassy is deeply concerned by reports of intensifying military action in Kachin State and northern Shan State. Continued fighting needlessly puts the lives of vulnerable communities at risk and undermines the trust that will be essential to achieving a nationwide ceasefire agreement. We call on authorities to prioritize the needs of those displaced by the conflict and to allow humanitarian assistance to all affected populations. We also strongly urge restraint on all sides and call for dialogue in service of genuine, lasting peace.
