MEDIA are indispensable for the nation, particularly at a time when the nation is being built anew, said Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing during a meeting with members of the Myanmar Media Council, led by Chairman U Khin Maung Lay at the Bayintnaung Guest House in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday.
“Media can contribute effective activities toward building the nation,” the senior general said. “Media professionals are urged to make the public aware of democratic practices.”
“The cessation of armed conflicts is of vital importance to peace and development,” he said.
“The Tatmadaw, on its part, will exert effort to achieve eternal peace as well as to help the government and the parliament ensure the rule of law. In this function, media professionals are needed to report on the events in a positive manner,” the senior general said.
The Myanmar Media Council was formed by 27 members on 11 November 2015.
