It is neither the place nor the land, that counts; what counts is for the ethnic armed organizations to tread upon the correct political path, said Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing during his meeting with Peace Process Steering Team (PPST) yesterday at Bayintnaung Yeiktha in Nay Pyi Taw.
Commander-in-Chief Min Aung Hlaing during a meeting with his Peace Process Steering Team (PPST) said that Tatmadaw adheres to Our Three Main Causes, that they will not deviate from the Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement in the 21st Century Panglong Conference.  Mutual trust matters most and that he believes that if all the ethnic armed organizations are united and make concerted effort for peace and development, success will be achieved in no time.
“Freedom, unity and justice are the dhammas that govern the world. Treading upon the path to peace and stability, we are required to trust one another,” he said.
“We cannot be dogmatic; we must be flexible. As long as we harbor the union spirit or Myanmar spirit we can reach our goal fast and peacefully,” said Min Aung Hlaing.
He went on to say that the Tatmadaw has invited all organisations to sign the nationwide ceasefire agreement, that if a multi-party democracy and unity among national brethren is really wanted, the NCA must be signed.
The strength of the nation lies only within, that the ethnic armed organisations are needed to adhere to the political means, that in the age of democracy, people can differ in their political doctrines but people ought not to differ in the affairs of the ethnic people and the Tatmadaw is not willing to wage battles against their brethren ethnic people.—Myanmar News Agency
