State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi addressed the meeting on Stability and Development of Rakhine State at the Presidential Palace yesterday afternoon.
In her address, the State Counsellor said that the central committee for development of Rakhine State was formed at the end of May as the affairs of Rakhine State are so sensitive. As a result, the Rakhine State Advisory Commission, led by Dr Kofi Annan, has been formed. However, the situation in Maungtaw District has worsened since the 9th October violent attacks. The government has placed an emphasis on the stability of Maungtaw District at present as well as Rakhine State in the long run. However, it should be cautioned that a new problem always occurs whenever stability has been restored in the region and it is important that the problems should be resolved in a correct manner and accusations should be refuted with the truth. In conclusion, the State Counsellor urged the central committee to address the issues with accountability.
Later, the secretary of the central committee reported on the implementation of the decisions of the previous meeting.
