THE United States will neither interfere with the internal peace process of Myanmar nor give pressure but provide technical assistance, said the US Ambassador to Myanmar at a meeting held at 10 am yesterday at the American Centre.
Ambasssador Scot Marciel said America has always given its support to the ceasefire effort and peace process of Myanmar and it lays special emphasis on the peace process.
As a foreign government, the US has no plans to interfere with the peace process of Myanmar and it does not intend to influence or pressure Myanmar either, he added.
He continued to say that Myanmar’s peace process is something that Myanmar people have to decide on, and on its part, the US are willing to provide whatever is necessary in addition to technical assistance, said the US ambassador.
The ambassador, during his meeting with representatives from Civil Service Organisations, local entrepreneurs, people from the education sector, government officials and the media said that there are still many challenges in regard to the reformation process and that the US is willing and ready to cooperate with the new government, Civil Society Organisations and entrepreneurs.
Concerning bilateral cooperation in trade and education sectors, the ambassador said the United States is promoting bilateral trade.
As an education exchange programme promoter, we will make arrangements for Myanmar students to be able to study in the US. At the moment, the US is building a new American Centre to enable Myanmar citizens to have greater access to educational resources.
