So, an emphasis is being placed on ceasing the armed conflicts and peace talks are being held with ethnic armed organizations. In this regard, the Tatmadaw adjusts the peace talks for having deserved measures for the State based on the wishes of meeting participants. Ethnics must have the rights to participate in the political platform so as to demand their entitlements under the law as the Hluttaw is the highest political platform in the democratic system.
The peace talks with ethnic armed organizations could bring positive results to the State, and remaining measures to be talked in detail are being discussed.

Only when they forge the military unity will they can unite the strength in order to achieve success in all assignments. Hence, they have to focus on military unity. A fair and united administrative system can fortify the military unity. All Tatmadaw members need to be loyal to each other, their families, the Tatmadaw and the State.
