In pursuing democracy,eternal peace is crucial for state peace, stability and development.Continued efforts will be made for ethnic armed groups to be able to follow the path to lasting peace. Every country has a single Tatmadaw. The Tatmadaw is an organization which has been formed in accordance with the law and the state order. Tatmadaw officers are also appointed under the gazette of the government and service personnel are appointed at different levels of orders as well. Hence, they have to discharge duties in line with the laws and rules enacted by the State and international law.
