The Arakan Army (AA) was founded to protect the Rakhine people and to establish peace, justice, freedom and development. The AA has fought alongside the KIA since the conflict with the government army resumed on June 9, 2011. More than half of their troops have been trained by the KIA.

1. self-determination for the multi-ethnic Rakhine population.

2. safeguard national identity and cultural heritage.

3. promote national dignity and Rakhine interests

The United League of Arakan/Arakan Army (ULA/AA) joined forces with the Kachin Independence Army (KIA) and started fighting alongside the KIA against the Tatmadaw (military). The armed group is a close ally of the Kachin Independence Organization (KIO/KIA), the Palaung State Liberation Front (PSLF/TNLA), and the Myanmar National Democratic Alliance Army (MNDAA). As a member of the United Nationalities Federal Council (UNFC), the ULA participated in the peace process in Myanmar under the U Thein Sein administration, but was rejected when the Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement (NCA) was signed.

On the other hand, clashes between the AA and the Tatmadaw continue unabated. Fighting between the two sides intensified in 2019 and 2020 and expanded to Kachin State, northern Shan State and the entire Rakhine State, as well as Paletwa Township in Chin State.

Despite talks with the Tatmadaw, fighting between the two sides has not subsided, delaying the ceasefire. As a result, elections could not be held in some constituencies in Rakhine State because security was not guaranteed.

Fighting between the AA and the Tatmadaw abruptly stopped during the post-election period, and there were talks about holding elections in those constituencies. Later, a ceasefire was reportedly reached between the AA and the Tatmadaw.
