NAY PYI TAW February 16

hairman of the State Ad-ministration Council Prime Minister Senior General Min Aung Hlaing, accompanied by his wife Daw Kyu Kyu Hla, Commander-in-Chief (Navy) Admiral Moe Aung and wife, Commander-in-Chief (Air) General Tun Aung and wife, senior military officers from the Office of the Commander-in-Chief and their wives, Com-mander of Triangle Region Command Maj-Gen Myo Min Tun and officials, met with officers and other ranks and their families from Mongkhat and Mongyaung stations of Triangle Region Command today.

Speaking on the occasion, the Senior General said that Tatmadaw has taken over State duties for over a year. The officers and other ranks should know and understand that the Tatmadaw took over those State duties in accord with the constitution (2008) following voting fraud in the 2020 multi-party democracy election. The previous Tatma-daw government shaped a path of multi-party democracy as aspired by the entire people. The general election was held in 2011 and NLD was allowed to take part in the 2015 general election. Then, it became the government after winning the election. Since its early rule, the NLD government committed some acts going against the law.

Regarding the peace pro-cess, it urged the ethnic armed organizations not to sign the NCA before taking office and showed weaknesses in carry-ing out the peace process after coming to power. Likewise, there were acts harming Myanmar’s culture and traditions.

Without domestic production encouragement and with reli-ance on imports, there were a lot of trade deficits. Some pro-jects with foreign loans were halted when they were about to finish. These are great losses to the State, which has to settle foreign debts every year. From 2011 to 2021, the trade deficit reached up to US$-25 billion. Efforts were made to increase trade income starting 2021.

The Tatmadaw announced voter list inaccuracies in De-cember 2020 and demanded problem solving repeatedly. But there were no action and attempts were made to even call a Hluttaw. Consequently, a state of emergency was de-clared inevitably and State duties taken over, the Senior General said.

He  continued  that  efforts amid difficulties led to decreas-ing COVID-19 cases. The third wave was overcome successfully thanks to the public par-ticipation, donors, health staff willing to serve State duties conscientiously and Tatma-daw medical corps. Due to the concerted efforts, the Covid-impacted economy has improv-ed again to a certain degree.

Ceasefire has been made and invitation extended to the peace talks. Priority is on achieving internal peace and establishing a union based on democracy and federalism.

The Senior General stressed the need for peace and stability for holding a free and fair election and ensuring all people vote as they wish without any pattern of threat. He also stressed the need to hold the up-coming election in all parts of the country.

As regard to Tatmadaw dut-ies, he said military rules and disciplines have been taught to Tatmadaw members from the basic level and they need to follow and respect them. Success will be achieved only if they follow order. The Tatma-daw is a well-trained organization. Every nation respect their military and tries to pro-mote their defence power.

Tatmadaw members need to try to live as good soldiers to ensure a capable Tatmadaw. Leaders themselves must be able to lead the Tatmadaw.

There must be mutual respect and following of order between the leaders and their subordinates.

The Senior General highlight-ed the importance of knowledge and skills to ensure order is followed and military discipline is good. So, measures are being taken for Tatmadaw members to improve basis edu-cation. They need to constantly read outside knowledgeable publications to widen their scope of knowledge. They also need to follow their respective faiths and try to educate their children.

The Tatmadaw families in-cluding students in Triangle Region Command have all been vaccinated against COVID-19. Emergence of a lot of educated people will ensure rich human resources. Schools are now open the exams will start in the first week of March. Emphasis must be placed on the education of their children. The Senior General also stressed the need to take security measures.

He then presented foodstuffs for the stations and wife Daw Kyu Kyu Hla cash awards for the maternal child welfare association.

Later, the Senior General and wife cordially greeted those present.
