Fighting with Burmese Military after peace talks

After just two days of peace talks between a government delegation and the Kachin Independence Organization, both sides were again fighting each other.
 “The government troops and the Kachin Independence organization were locked in battle in Nam Haing village, Montong Township for two hours this is the longest battle within the comrade 8 ”according to one of the Ta’ang National Liberation Army officers.
One of the TNA officers reported that “Usually the fighting is staged in short battles of about 10 to 15 minutes. However this battle started from 4 pm and ended at 6 pm in which a massive amount of government troops were killed but  we don’t details of the exact amount killed yet.”

Both sides of the delegation talked from the 8th to the 10th of March. They released a statement with 5 main points. On the fourth of point states; that each side will reduce the intensity of battle as a consequence of the talks peace.
The Burmese government continually talks of peace but at the same time they are still engaging in conflict. This highlights  the fact that their talk is purely superficial and this does nothing to build trust with the ethnic communities.
