Ambassador U Kyaw Moe Tun, Permanent Representative of Myanmar to the UN, addressed the following at the UN General Assembly Plenary Meeting on the Annual Report of the United Nations Security Council held on June 30:

“In the resolution 2669, the Security Council demanded an immediate end to all forms of violence and called for swift implementation of ASEAN 5-Point consensus among others. While we welcome and appreciate the Council’s statements and resolution, we have seen that each and every call of the Security Council has fallen on deaf ears of the military junta which is waging war on its own people. There is no progress on the implementation of ASEAN 5-point consensus.”

The Ambassador went on to say that the military junta has killed 3,728 people to date and that more than 1.5 million people have been displaced due to its aerial, heavy-weapon, and arson attacks on civilian populations, and that the military continues to commit those acts of terrorism targeting civilians with total impunity.

“Our organisation (KaLaLaTa) officially joins the Spring Resistance War that is being waged today all over the country with our own decision. Our organisation wants to work together with all parties, and organisations that want to completely destroy the military group, the military dictatorship, the junta, and the 2008 Constitution. It is now officially time to publicly carry out engagement activities relating to the Spring Revolution, which were previously partially carried out in secret due to some considerations that needed to be taken into account. To be specific, our organisation (KaLaLaTa) is ready to engage closely with the National Unity Government (NUG) and carry out our revolutionary tasks together,” the statement said.

The Karenni Nationalities People’s Liberation Front (KaLaLaTa/KNPLF), which had been a border guard under the military for many years, took part in rebellion against the Myanmar military regime after joining resistance forces in raiding junta outposts such as Taung Hla (BP-16), Mei Ta Nwe (BP-15), and BP-14 in the east of the Thanlwin River, which is a region of the Karenni (Kayah) State, on June 13.
