MONGOLIAN President Mr. Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj stressed the need not to take democracy as a master key to everything while holding a briefing on the realisation of democracy, the rule of law and transparency in Mongolia in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday.
The onus is upon all Myanmar citizens to serve the nation, said the President, adding that Myanmar people have to do their bit for democracy to strengthen the rights and opportunities of the people.
He highlighted the importance of the people’s voice and its need to be heard, emphasising the need to create situations that pave the way for public involvement in each and every matter of the country.
Public participation is key to peaceful transition and further achievements, said the President.  It is imperative to change mindsets in order to fight corruption which is a global problem because it is found not only in Myanmar and Mongolia but also in other world’s nations, he added. During his talks, the President also shared the Mongolian government’s experience of working in public service delivery.  A Q & A session followed, with the President answering questions raised by those present.
Mongolia began its transformation from a communist country of more than 70 years into democracy in 1990. — Myanmar News Agency
