We all encountered many challenges in 2020, in peace-making issue and the outbreak of COVID-19. I wish that all the people could free from the disease and get the vaccine. Peace and prosperity of the country cannot be made by the ruling party or the government alone. We need to work for national unity aspired by all citizens. We must try for lasting peace based on the good foundations.
Armed conflicts in Rakhine State and the northern part of the country have been under control to a certain degree. All the stakeholder must work together for peace. Enjoy peace and happiness in the new year.
