Myanmar National Truth and Justice Party (MNTJP) and Myanmar National Democratic Alliance Army (MNDAA) was established after the Kokang army led by Peng Jiasheng split from Burma Communist Party and signed a ceasefire agreement with State Law and Order Restoration Council in 1989.

However, when 20 years later, Myanmar army attacked MNDAA in Laukkai on 27 September 2009 after MNDAA rejected to transform into Border Guard Force (BGF). Kokang army split two factions after Myanmar army captured Laukkai. One faction could successfully transform into BGF 1006 and another faction led by Peng Jiasheng went underground. MNDAA has become a UNFC and NCCT member in 2013.
