The primary duty of the Tatmadaw is to defend the State, and it is now temporarily serving the State responsibilities due to the needs. The military discipline is the backbone of the Tatmadaw, so, all need to be disciplined and obedient servicemen. They should strive for serving the interests of the respective military units, the Tatmadaw, the region and the state as much as they can while controlling their minds, said Chairman of the State Administration Council Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing in meeting with senior officer instructors, senior officer lecturers, medical specialists, faculty members, officers, other ranks and families from PyinOoLwin Station at the Convocation Hall of the Defence Services Academy yesterday afternoon.
Speaking at the meeting, the Senior General said as the tremendous errors of voter lists which may cause the voting frauds in the 2020 multiparty democratic general election were found, reports were submitted to different levels of responsible organizations for solving them. But, no one solving it was done, and attempts were made to seize the State powers through incorrect ways by convening the Third Hluttaw. So, the Tatmadaw politically declared the nation as the State of Emergency and temporarily took the State responsibilities handed over by the Pro Tem President.
The Tatmadaw decides to further strive for ensuring genuine democracy and disciplined and firm democracy.
The Tatmadaw which formed the State Administration Council by adopting the five-point road map and nine objectives is prioritizing the prevention, control and treatment of COVID-19. The infection of the pandemic was the highest in June and July with the high death rate. Efforts were made for a rapid supply of oxygen to the needed patients. At present, the infection rate is on the decline due to vaccinating the prioritized groups of people. Thanks to the collaborative efforts of officials, health staff and volunteers as well as people, the infection of the disease can be controlled at present.
Efforts are being made for soonest remedying the disease-battered businesses. Being an agro and livestock-based country, Myanmar is encouraging the manufacturing industries to have a high production rate. The high production rate will help increase the value of the products as well as develop the manufacturers, employees and related businesses in addition to enhancement of State economy. Factories are allowed to resume operations under the COVID-19 restrictions. It can be seen that efforts are being made for the resumption of the closed factories.
The Tatmadaw, after taking the State responsibilities, arranged the opening of the schools closed in the outbreak of COVID-19 for the interests of the State, parents and students. However, these schools were temporarily closed again for the threats of the third wave caused by COVID-19. The government is striving for the reopening of the schools at a time when the pandemic can be thoroughly controlled. According to the census 2019, the number of people who had not learnt high school education and the illiterate rate was high. So, it is necessary to emphasize the education sector.
Emphasis is being placed on the implementation of the peace process in accord with the provisions of the Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement. Since regaining independence, Myanmar has been facing armed conflicts based on political and ethnic diverse attitudes, so the government is striving for restoring the perpetual peace the entire people aspire. If the Tatmadaw has completed its tasks in accord with the provisions of the State of Emergency, it will hold the free and fair election under the 2008 State Constitution.
The primary duty of the Tatmadaw is to defend the State, and it is now temporarily serving the State responsibilities due to the needs. The military discipline is the backbone of the Tatmadaw, so, all need to be disciplined and obedient servicemen. If they do not abide by the basic military tactics and arts of the military, they may face bitter experiences for having great losses on the battlefields. Hence, individual serviceman needs to take training for health, fitness and skills with good discipline and obedience.
It is necessary to observe the enhancement of the capacity of trainees and deploy them in the right positions. Priority must be given to the qualification rather than the quantity. It is necessary to turn out the officers and other ranks on whom the State and the Tatmadaw rely.

It is necessary to turn out the officers and other ranks on whom the State and the Tatmadaw rely. Moreover, as 52 per cent population of the nation is women, arrangements were made for the emergence of female officers and other ranks to be able to shoulder with the armed forces from global countries.
Hence, officers, other ranks and families should strive for improvement of their lives by dutifully discharging the assignments. In so doing, they all need to try hard for their works with honesty and with the mind of satisfaction. The Senior General urged them to strive for serving the interests of the respective military units, the Tatmadaw, the region and the State as much as they can while controlling their minds.
The Senior General asked the needs of officers, other ranks and families who attended the ceremony and attended to the needs before cordially greeted them. —MNA
