While ceasefire negotiations are taking place in some ethnic areas, fighting continues in Kachin State, Northern Burma. The Burmese army is pressing its attacks in Kachin State with over 100 battalions deployed. There are around 70,000 Kachin people displaced, and Kachin civilians and soldiers are killed weekly. It seems that the Burmese army in the area has decided go on their own way, despite the fact that the President Thein Sein reportedly gave the order in December 2011 to stop the attacks.
