After the fighting on Tuesday and Thursday, the AA retreated beyond the border, the report said, adding that the government troops will negotiate with the other side of the country about the issue through diplomatic means.

According to the report, AA started in March last year to conduct operation in some areas in order to establish their strongholds in Paletwa and Kyauktaw but withdrew from the areas later after engagement with the government troops.

Latest clashes between the two sides occurred for 15 times in December/January in the Ranchaung-RuChaung area of Kyauktaw, Rakhine state.

AA is among those remaining groups not included in the nationwide ceasefire deal between the government and eight ethnic armed groups on Oct. 15 last year. Enditem
