“According to the information department of government (Myawady) claim that troops of government confiscated one gun, 6 bullets from RCSS/SSA troops and one troop of RCSS/SSA died in the battle, that wasn’t the real news,” one officer of RCSS/SSA said to our reporters.
The officer continued, “our RCSS/SSA officers understood that battle had happened due to both sides designating the territories unclearly, but we don’t mind and we will continue on the peace process that we had agreed with the government.”
On 17 August 2015, RCSS/SSA and other two ethnic groups issued the statement that they will sign the NCA (Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement).
