Union Minister Dr Win Myat Aye, the chairman of the committee, made an opening remark on the coordination meeting of the committee, saying that his committee developed the action plan, and it was updated with the recommendations of relevant departments and organizations before it was drafted in line with the suggestions of UN organizations.
The Director-General of Social Welfare Department explained the draft plan, and the attendees discussed it.
The National Level Action Plan (draft) was prepared based on three UN Security Council resolutions and the six priority areas for cooperation in the Joint Communique on Prevention and Response to Conflict-Related Sexual Violence which Myanmar signed with the United Nations on 7 December 2018.
The President’s Office formed the National Committee with the five assignments to draft the action plan for implementing the joint communique.
The draft action plan will also be submitted to the President’s Office for its approval.—MNA
