DPM Union Defence Minister returns to Yangon after successful Moscow engagements

A delegation led by member of the State Administration Council (SAC) Deputy Prime Minister Union Minister for Defence Admiral Tin Aung San returned to Yangon by air yesterday. The delegation returned after participating in the International Military-Technical Forum (ARMY-2023) and the 11th International Security Conference (XI Moscow Conference on International Security) in Moscow, the Russian Federation.
During their stay in Moscow, Admiral Tin Aung San, along with Russian Defence Minister Army General Sergey Shoigu, unveiled a memorial statue named “Allies of Myanmar Warriors”.

These discussions focused on enhancing cooperation in various areas, bolstering military technology collaboration, and facilitating academic exchanges.
The visit included participation in the opening ceremonies of ARMY-2023 and the 11th International Security Conference. During the latter event, Senior General Min Aung Hlaing, Chairman of the State Administration Council, emphasized ASEAN unity for peace in the Asia-Pacific region and discussed Myanmar’s political development through his video message.
The delegation also visited Patriot Park, where they explored military equipment displays and met with company officials. They paid homage to the Shwezigon Pagoda replica and observed exhibits showcasing captured foreign military equipment.
The visit concluded with a gesture of respect to the Myanmar Monastery in Moscow, where the delegation paid their respects to the abbot Sayadaw and engaged in traditional offerings.
This diplomatic mission underscores the ongoing strategic partnership between Myanmar and Russia, reinforcing historical bonds and exploring avenues for future collaboration. — MNA/TS
