Union Minister for Ethnic Affairs U Saw Tun Aung Myint received Mro ethnic leader U San Thar Aung in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday.
During the meeting, the Union Minister said that he discussed literature and culture with Rakhine State ethnic literature and culture associations in his visit, the appointment of TA/LT for ethnic languages, distribution of storybooks, development of ethnic literature and ethnic regions, and cash assistance to these associations.
Then, Mro ethnic leader U San Thar Aung discussed the teaching of Mro language at basic schools, the appointment of TA/LT for ethnic language and other matters.
Deputy Minister U Zaw Aye Maung said Mro Ethnic Literature and Culture Associations should have common literature to teach at the schools. The approval of the Rakhine State Administration Council is needed. If they have perfect documents, the ministry will discuss them with the Ministry of Education to seek approval. After receiving the permit, the TA/LT for ethnic language will be assigned.
The Union Minister also stressed the need to preserve the literature, culture and traditions. He also said Mro ethnic people should hold a conference of Mro people to designate a common literature as other ethnic people or the ministry cannot make the decision for this issue. If there is a literature that all Mro people agree with, the ministry will help in accordance with the law or rules to protect the rights of ethnic minorities.—MNA
