The party that emerged from the All Arakan Students and Youths Congress (AASYC), the National United Front of Arakan (NUFA), and the Arakan Liberation Army (ALA) is also affiliated with the Democratic Karen Buddhist Army (DKBA). The ANC was not allowed to sign the Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement (NCA) although it participated in peace talks as a member of the United Nationalities Federal Council (UNFC) under U Thein Sein administration.

The ANC/AA’s ambitions are to allow all Rakhine people the right to shape their own destiny, preserve their national identity and cultural heritage, and liberate every ethnic group in Myanmar from dictatorship.

The ANC strongly condemned the government’s blocking of internet access in townships in northern Rakhine State, saying it is nothing but an attempt by the military to cover up war crimes and crimes against humanity.
