Myanmar - January 2024

Partial ceasefire agreed
Watch flag

Myanmar’s military junta and the Brotherhood Alliance, an alliance of armed groups operating in the north of the country agreed to a ceasefire after two days of China-mediated talks on 10-11 January. The International Crisis Group described the ceasefire, which was joined by all armed groups, as “tenuous” after a previous China-brokered ceasefire in December collapsed after one week. The junta reportedly continued to lose ground in Rakhine, Kachin and Kayah states to armed groups not party to the ceasefire.  On 31 January, the junta extended the state of emergency that has been in place since its 2021 coup for another six months.
