      Position Statement of KNU on Current Situation in the Country

                                                                December 4, 2012

• The KNU reaffirms deeply its appreciation of effort by current Burma
  (Myanmar) government and its processes for securing ceasefire and peace with
  the armed ethnic organizations.

• The violent suppression by Myanmar authorities of the ongoing people’s
  movement relating to Letpadaung Taung Copper Mining Project should never
  have happened.

• Similarly, while effort is being made to halt the war and secure peace in Kachin
   State, there are the heightening of offensive momentum by Myanmar Army and
   the burning down of the sanctuaries of the IDP.


• In the time when effort for national reconciliation and peace is being
  made, such appalling actions have caused great concern with regard to
  future prospect for peace.
