3 December 2014

The recent fighting in Kachin and Shan States, and the shelling of a training camp in Kachin which killed 23 people on 19 November, has been widely reported. We have concerns about the impact it will have on the peace process in Burma. We call for an end to the violence to allow for the resumption of meaningful negotiations towards a Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement.
