Myanmar: Current Developments

Paper No. 6557     Dated 30- June- 2019

By Dr. S. Chandrasekharan.

The unilateral cease fire ordered by the Army ends today and there is as yet no sign whether the ceasefire will be further extended by the Army. 

For the first time, there were fewer incidents of fighting between Tatmadaw and the Arakan Army in June.  However an incident near Sittwe port and the destruction of construction materials of an Indian project for  Kaladan Bridge should be of concern to India.
