Rakhine political parties to meet to discuss AA attacks

A Rakhine political party said Wednesday that it will hold a meeting in Rakhine state’s capital Sittwe to discuss a warning by a central government spokesman this week against support for the region’s ethnic military force following a deadly attack it conducted on police outposts, RFA reported.

The Arakan National Party (ANP) has invited other Rakhine-based political parties, civil society organizations, and locals to join in the talks, scheduled for Jan. 12, on remarks by President’s Office spokesman Zaw Htay on Monday cautioning backers of the Arakan Army (AA) to no longer support the insurgent organization, said ANP vice chairperson Aye Nu Sein.

Specifically, the ANC has invited the Arakan League for Democracy and ethnic Mro and Daing-net political parties, she said.
