AS a citizen who desires stability and development of the country, cadets should combine the lesson taught by the military academy with a sound sense of justice, moral principles, appropriate cooperation, good citizenship and a desire to protect the people, said the Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing at the graduation ceremony of the 57th Intake of Defence Services Academy in Pyin Oo Lwin on Friday.
After inspecting the parade of graduating cadets, the senior general said that the military is taking necessary measures to achieve the transition to a multiparty democracy process in accordance with the law.
“One of the basic principles of democracy is rule of law. Mutual respect and cooperation are also essential to democracy,” he said.
The senior general explained the peace process being carried out by the government, saying that the military has opened the door and will always welcome armed ethnic groups that have not yet signed the nationwide ceasefire agreement to become a signatory to it.
In conclusion, he urged the cadets to strive to become leaders who can promote the best image of the military academy.
