Date of publication: 09 January 2013
Description/subject: "The United Nationalities Federal Council (UNFC) general annual meeting has to issue this press release because of the continuing massive military operations by the Burma (Myanmar) government forces against the Kachin Independence O rganization (KIO) base area of Laiza.

It is also diametrically opposed to the national reconciliation called for by the people of the Union..."

In the one - sided attack, the UMNT makes it out as if the KIO/ KIA were the aggressors employing all the dirty tricks to bully the Tatmadaw troops. The news release is nothing but a Nazi - like propaganda war, the use of media to influence public opinion, to paint the KIO/KIA black in the eyes of the people of Burma and the international community..."

Title: United Nationalities Federal Council Statement on Peace in the Country (English)
Date of publication: 04 December 2011
Description/subject: "The armed conflict, which has been going on between the non-Burman nationalities and successive regimes in power in the Union of Burma, is due to denial of equality to the non-Burman nationalities. This lack of equality is the crucial political problem underlying the politics of Burma. Instead of resolving the political problem by political means, use of the military might for suppression or regional development after ceasefire, by the regimes in power is an attempt to break up the struggle of the nationalities for “Political Equality” by trickery and so the country has been driven away from peace for more than 60 years. On August 18, U Thein Sein government made an overture for peace talk by issuing a statement once more. However, talk with individual organizations separately was specified as a pre-condition. We view this as not only as a difficult and slow-moving way but also as an attempt to break up the unity of the UNFC..."

Date of publication: 08 October 2011
Description/subject: "At the oath taking ceremony for assuming presidential duties, President U Thein Sein said that he would endeavor for national unity and the growth of the union spirit, which was true nationalism. On August 18, the government made overture for peace talk with the Union Government Statement Number 1/2011. These moves are indications of willingness to build national unity by the new government , led by U Thein Sein . Members of our U nited Nationalities Federal Council (UNFC), the armed organizations of the ethnic nationalities, also desire national unity. Even though the two sides have the desire for national unity, why the national unity is in shambles and armed conflict has been con tinuing for more than 60 years? We need to analyze the question. We, members of the UNFC, are not struggling for breaking away from the union. We are simply striving to regain our birth rights, which are the rights of the ethnic nationalities..."

Title: Introduction to United Nationalities Federal Council (UNFC)
Date of publication: 03 September 2011
Description/subject: "The UNFC is a representation of reunification of almost all the ethnic resistance forces, particularly between the ceasefire organizations – the Kachin Independent Organization (KIO), Shan State Progress Party (SSPP) and New Mon State Party (NMSP) - and the non - ceasefire organizations – Karen National Union (KNU), Karenni National Progressive Party (KNPP) and Chin National Front (CNF). The reunification process started in early 2010, after the SPDC military regime insisted on the ceasefire organizations (CFOs) to transform their armed wings to the Border Guard Force (BGF) or people's militia, which would be subjected totally to the command of Burma Army. At the end of the 16 - year old cease fire period, the SPDC military regime demanded CFOs to transform its armed forces to BGF or people’s militia. Some CFOs such as the KIO, SSPP, NMSP, DKBA, etc. totally rejected the demand, since they had signed the ceasefire agreement, with the hope of gaining the rights to political equality and self-determination of the ethnic nationalities..."
