Myanmar Shadow Govt Says Allying With Rebels to ‘Demolish’ Junta Rule

Ashadow government in Myanmar seeking to reverse the February 1 coup has joined forces with a rebel group to “demolish” junta rule, it said Saturday.

Myanmar has been in turmoil since the military overthrew Aung San Suu Kyi and her National League for Democracy government and launched a brutal crackdown on dissent.

They pledged “mutual recognition” and to “partner equally” the statement added, without giving further details. A CNF spokesperson could not immediately be reached for comment.

The group — which represents the mainly Christian Chin minority in western Myanmar — signed a ceasefire with the country’s military, also known as Tatmadaw, in 2015.

In recent years its fighters have dwindled.

“The CNF has no real military strength, so this move is symbolic,” Richard Horsey, senior advisor on Myanmar to the International Crisis Group, told AFP.
