KIA and TNLA cooperation to end the dictatorship.

KIA and TNLA cooperation to end the dictatorship.


It was announced that the Kachin Liberation Army (KIO/KIA) and Palaung State Liberation Front (PSLF/TNLA) have agreed to fight together until the end of the military dictatorship.



The agreements were announced today on May 28, after the representatives of both sides met and discussed in Maijayang, Kachin State last mid-May.



The statement said that the two sides will consult and decide on all important issues based on national equality.


The two sides met and discussed after there were tensions between ethnic armed forces in Kachin and Shan states, where the KIA and TNLA are the main military forces.



It was also agreed that the KIA and TNLA should focus on friendship and avoid fighting between the two factions, avoiding controversial histories.


In addition to continuing to maintain the existing alliance between the two parties, he also said that they will cooperate in anti-drug activities and the safety of ethnic people living in the region.


Both of these groups are also groups that are accepting and teaching military education to the People's Defense Forces that emerged after the coup d'état.


After the military coup in 2021, political analysts believe that there is more cooperation between the powerful ethnic armed forces.
