Yangon, 5 Aug— Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing provided relief aid to flood victims in Taikkyi Township Wednesday.
At a meeting with the flood victims in the township, he called on the people to be alerted to severe weather conditions caused by the climate change, urging them to cooperate with the Sate and the Tatmadaw to overcome the current challenges caused by floods.

Authorities have provided aids to flood victims sheltering at a monastery in Taikkyi.  The senior general met U.S. Ambassador to Myanmar Mr Derek James Mitchell here Wednesday to discuss bilateral cooperation between the two countries’ armed forces.
At the call, both sides exchanged views on the Tatmadaw’s role in Myanmar, the upcoming general election, eliminating the use of child soldiers, and the Tatmadaw’s flood relief operations.
Also present at the meeting were Deputy Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Commander-in-Chief (Army) Vice-Senior General Soe Win and senior military officers, as well as U.S. Military Attaché Col James McAden.—Myawady
