The Committee for Supporting Peace and Stability in Rakhine State met with officials from the National League for Democracy, Rakhine State Legal Support Group and Municipal Development Committee, experts on Rakhine and local elders at the State Cabinet’s Guesthouse in Sittway yesterday.
The Committee Chairman U Aye Thar Aung, who is also Deputy Speaker of the Amyotha Hluttaw, first delivered a speech. He said this meeting has brought individuals with political experience to figure out long-term and short-term solutions to Rakhine State’s armed conflicts and stability.
He said this is the committee’s third observation trip to Rakhine State. In the previous trips, the meetings invited monks, political parties, local elders, civil society organizations and experienced individuals to share their perspectives and the true situation faced by the people in Rakhine State, said U Aye Thar Aung. He added that every comment was compiled into a report and submitted to the President.
U Aye Thar Aung said the committee’s main responsibility is to meet every relevant person and compile a report without leaving a single comment or suggestion out. He said the committee also responds to consequences from armed conflicts to best of their abilities. He said this meeting has invited people with sufficient experience in politics and Rakhine affairs. He urged attendees to discuss all possible solutions to reduce conflicts in Rakhine State and ways to provide aid to innocent citizens caught in the negative consequences of conflicts.
Following the Chairman’s speech, attendees began discussions on finding political solutions to Rakhine’s armed conflicts, resettling IDPs to their homes and ensuring security, supporting their social, health and vocational matters, arranging for students in IDP camps to attend schools nearby, and short/long-term solutions to implement peace and stability in Rakhine State. The Chairman then delivered the closing speech.
In the afternoon, U Aye Thar Aung and his delegation met with the State Chief Minister U Nyi Pu, the state cabinet, State Hluttaw Speaker U San Kyaw Hla and Hluttaw representatives at the State Cabinet’s Guesthouse.
U Aye Thar Aung first delivered a speech and attendees then discussed current affairs in Rakhine State, matters related to the IDPs, and state peace, stability and development.
U Aye Thar Aung and his delegation departed from Sittway to Yangon in the evening. They were seen off at Sittway Airport by U Nyi Pu and the state cabinet.—MNA (Translated by Zaw Htet Oo)
