COMMANDER-in-Chief of Defense Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing warned yesterday of a possible range of acts designed to disintegrate the unity of the Tatmadaw and to harm its strength by those who have misconceptions on the stances and activities of the Tatmadaw which, the senior general said, is taking a rightful way to ensure a strong and sustainable political system in the country.
In his address at a meeting with officers and other military personnel at the Yangon Region Command, the senior general said much works remains to be done to realise peace, stability and rule of law in the country.
He stressed the need to bring an end to armed conflicts and the strict adherence to laws, rules and regulations in order to take the country’s democracy to a durable stage.
He pointed out that some ethnic armed organisations are raising their demands, neglecting provisions stated in the law.
Buddhists make up 85 per cent of the population in Myanmar, where religious freedom is guaranteed, he said.
After the meeting, the commander-in-chief and his wife, Daw Kyu Kyu Hla, presented books and publications to families of the servicemen and cash awards to the maternal and child welfare associations of the command.—Myawady
