(1) To resolve serious political problems through political dialogue,
(2) To effectively carry out practical tasks in conformity with the peace process between our organizations and the government of Myanmar and its military,
(3) To protect life and property of the general public for the sake of the majority of people occurring without any fighting,

Press release of ULA/A/AA
June 1, 2020
Press release of an ultimatum demanding “the total and immediate withdrawal of the administrative apparatus of the Burmese regime and all Burmese armed forces from Arakan”
United League of Arakan/Arakan Army, which was formed comprising of all peoples of Arakan and ethnic minorities with the aims for the liberation of the entire oppressed population of Arakan from the Burmese colonial occupation and misrule, the right of national equality and self-determination, the regaining of national losses and entitlements of the Arakanese, and the emergence of a new society of Arakan which is secure, peace, developed, free and dignified, has been implementing the Arakanese national goal in line with “the Way of Rakhita”.
It is hereby notified that no armed forces of the Burmese regime in Arakan shall be accepted by the ULA/AA. Myanmar Police Force and Border Guard Forces, which are under the control and subdivisions of the Myanmar Military under the Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services , have been collaborating to carry out operations support activities for the Myanmar Army’s offensive attacks against the Arakan Army, arbitrary detention and torture of civilians of Arakan in the four-cuts campaign of the Myanmar Army.

ULA/AA's Response to Office of the Commander-in-Chief of Myanmar Army's Statement
May 11, 2020
ULA/AA’s response to Office of the Commander-in-Chief of Myanmar Army’s statement on ceasefire and eternal peace during the COVID-19 pandemic
“Statement on ceasefire and lasting peace” released by Office of the Commander-in-Chief of Myanmar Army on 9 May 2020 was just a sham without substance. That devious statement is also a deliberate attempt, in which the Myanmar Army has used the Coronavirus pandemic to take military and political advantages and to lessen the pressure of ICJ.
Sending supportive information concerning the preventive measures of coronavirus by the government of Myanmar and asking cooperation by the Myanmar Army whilst launching their intensified offensive assaults is just a political trick which is inconstant, irresponsible and illogical. Similarly, “everyone must follow peace policy of the Commander-in-Chief of Myanmar Army” highlighted in their statement explicitly shows that the Myanmar Army does not want peace in Myanmar but they are going to strengthen their military domination.
The similar statement has already been released by the Myanmar Army on 21 December 2018. Like the old one, the current statement has also excluded Arakan region and the hidden-agenda of their statement is to launch the full-scaled war targeting and focusing only on the Arakan Army and...

Press Release of the Fifth-Term Extension of a Unilateral Ceasefire by Three Brotherhood Alliance
May 8, 2020
Press Release of the fifth-term extension of a unilateral ceasefire by
Three Brotherhood Alliance
3 May 2020
Despite the constantly extension of unilateral ceasefire by Our Three Brotherhood Alliance of the Kokang (MNTJP/MNDAA), the Ta’ang (PSLF/TNLA) and the Arakan (ULA/AA), Myanmar Army has not halted their sea-land-air joint operations against the Arakan Army but conducted the most intensified offensive assaults than ever, based on racial hatred, targeting civilians of Arakan. As a result, heavy fighting is occurring on a daily basis to date.
In a same way, the government of Myanmar and the Myanmar Army have been pressuring and attacking us from every angle in order for our Three Brotherhood Alliance to face military and political crises in addition to sporadic fighting in the Ta’ang and the Kokang regions. Therefore, mutual trust is deteriorating and a potential flame of civil war recurrence can be seen after receding peace process in Myanmar.
The unilateral ceasefire our Three Brotherhood Alliance has declared for several times is to effectively carry out practical tasks and to facilitate the peace building process between our organizations and the government of Myanmar and its military. Similarly, we have now extended a...

Statement of INGOs in Myanmar on the situation in Rakhine
April 1, 2019
As international NGOs supporting communities throughout Rakhine State, we express our deep concern with the continued fighting between the Myanmar Security and the Arakan Army Forces. This conflict is causing civilian casualties, displacing communities, and worsening the already precarious humanitarian situation in central and northern Rakhine State. Echoing our previous statement from January 2019, we urge all parties to the conflict to ensure the protection of civilians in compliance with international humanitarian law and human rights law
Compounding the impact of conflict and displacement on communities, since January 10, 2019, the Government of Myanmar has imposed restrictions on the access of humanitarian and development agencies in five key townships (Kyauktaw, Ponnagyun, Buthidaung, Maungdaw and Rathedaung in Rakhine State). Newly imposed restrictions are also affecting access to rural areas in Mrauk U township.
At least 95,000 people living in these conflict affected areas, are no longer able to access a number of basic and essential services. Health care services, education and access to clean water have all been jeopardized. Livelihood programmes, agricultural support and other development efforts have also been suspended, impacting the food security and wellbeing of these communities. While some relief activities targeting newly displaced populations have been...
