First, Maj-Gen Zaw Min Tun explained the situation of diplomatic relations between Myanmar and the Russian Federation, the visit of the Myanmar delegation led by the Prime Minister to the federation from 10 to 16 July, and discussions and negotiations with officials from various sectors for Russia-Myanmar bilateral cooperation, criticisms of rumours on the instructions and announcements issued by the Central Bank of Myanmar, plans to support civil servants (eight per cent of the basic salary for permanent employees as house rent if married and four per cent if single) and K10,000 monthly support for hardship and risk duty expenses for members of the Myanmar Police Force, and programmes that will provide low-interest loans to local businesses.

He said both the government and the Tatmadaw did not establish the Pyu Saw Htee as the ‘pocket army’ like AFPFL, a democratic hypocritical authoritarian system.

He also highlighted the peace talks between nine ethnic armed organizations-EAOs – seven NCA signatories and two non-signatories – and the Chairman of the State Administration Council Prime Minister at his invitation, arrangements to meet with these nine organizations for the second time and plans for some ethnic armed organizations to discuss with.
He continued that there have been no clashes between Tatmadaw and AA since 2020 and although peace was established to a certain extent, AA abducted some innocent civilians, government employees and security force members in previous months. The unscrupulous persons who do not want peace in Rakhine State also spread misinformation and fake news to create misunderstanding between the two groups to cause war with suspicion.
He also stressed the disagreements in KNU regarding peace, opening the door for those who want peace really and walking on the NCA path to peace talks and other issues related to Kaung for You Online education established by terrorist group NUG.
Then, Union Election Commission Member U Khin Maung Oo explained with PowerPoint presentations regarding the inspections of political parties, field census on voter lists including work plans of the UEC.
