Senior General Min Aung Hlaing addressed the meeting 5/2023 of the State Administration Council in Nay Pyi Taw.
The bloc led by the United States of America is steadfastly committing the acts for the government/group they wish to grasp power in Myanmar, and if not, they create instability in all sectors of Myanmar, said Senior General Min Aung Hlaing.
Chairman of the State Administration Council Prime Minister Senior General Min Aung Hlaing delivered a speech at the meeting 5/2023 of the SAC at the office of the SAC Chairman in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday.
He noted that the US itself provides aid to terrorist groups under various titles. India, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia have been maintaining fraternity with Myanmar throughout history. However, the countries which cannot go against the influence of the US imposed trade, financial and foreign affairs sanctions against Myanmar.
The Senior General recounted that the west bloc led by the US is continually interfering in Myanmar affairs, and noted that Myanmar and the US are not enemies. Both countries have never been at war. Myanmar was not involved in the Vietnamese war triggered by the invasion of the US in Southeast Asia.
Up to now, the US has regarded to Myanmar as enemy due to a bad background history. In this regard, the SEATO led by the US was formed in Southeast Asia in 1954. It primarily aimed to prevent proliferation of communism in Southeast Asia. SEATO was dissolved in June 1977. If the secession of the states mentioned in the 1947 Constitution and demanding the rights of secession for the states in 1961-62 is adjusted with the SEATO process, everybody can understand the complication of Myanmar’s politics.
The Senior General continued that when they could not see Myanmar’s politics as they liked, they were hostile to the forces which protect the occurrences as they would like to see.
At present, he highlighted that the group led by the US aims to hold up the China Containment Policy.
Although some countries recognized the elections based on the Constitution (2008), they did not recognize the declaration of the State of Emergency to take the State responsibilities under the Constitution (2008) due to voting fraud in the 2020 multiparty democratic general elections, showing exercising of their double standards.
With regard to the election, the Senior General unveiled that upon completion of the measures taken under the provisions of the State of Emergency, the government has guaranteed the country to hold a free and fair multiparty democratic election for handing over the State’s responsibilities to the elected government.
Concerning monetary affairs, the Senior General underscored that Myanmar does not rely on just a banking system in trading, and Myanmar joins hands with friendly countries and neighbouring countries.
The Senior General disclosed that Myanmar is emphasizing the use of many monetary systems similar to the international community but on a single monetary system in finance and trade measures. He stressed that it is necessary to further enhance friendly relations with neighbouring countries in addition to improving border trade.
He highlighted that if the international community needs to see the betterment of Myanmar, it needs to further cooperate with Myanmar, warning that directly or indirectly encouraging terrorist groups will delay strengthening the multiparty democratic system the people aspire to and implementing the development projects of the State.
Council members reported on their field trips to relevant areas in regions and states and further plans. The Joint Secretary of the Council explained peace and stability and rule of law measures for the State in October 2023.
The meeting was also attended by SAC Vice-Chairman Deputy Prime Minister Vice-Senior General Soe Win, Secretary Lt-Gen Aung Lin Dwe, Joint Secretary Lt-Gen Ye Win Oo and officials. — MNA/TTA
