State Administration Council Information Team Leader Maj-Gen Zaw Min Tun Makes Clarifications on the Current Situation in Myanmar

The State Administration Council (SAC) Information Team Leader Maj-Gen Zaw Min Tun made clarifications on the ongoing situation in the country as follows;

  • Naval vessels from People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) conducted Maritime Security Exercise with naval vessels from Myanmar Navy. Officers and other ranks from the People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) took study tours around the famous places in Yangon.
  • Myanmar and China have built strong relationship not only between the two governments but also between the two armed forces.
  • Myanmar is continuing its efforts to hand over illegal immigrants from border areas to relevant countries. Until 3rd of December, a total of 10,952 illegal immigrants had been handed over to relevant countries.
  • Subversive media receiving assistance from Western nations lambast the cooperation on peace and stability, prevalence of law and order and security in China-Myanmar border areas in order to worsen the relations between the two countries.
  • The Government has made rescue and recovery operations after Cyclonic Storm Mocha hit Rakhine State. In contrast, the AA group has never made good deeds for Rakhine State.
  • People should consider the fact that “Would the AA group’s motiveless attacks on security posts, villages and towns in Rakhine State by any chance intend for liberation of Rakhine State as they proclaimed?”
  • Thanks to the efforts of peace advocates and peace negotiators, another 193 captured tutors and students from Loikaw University were released on 29 November, and further attempts will be pursued for 11 others who have been held in custody of the insurgents.
  • There are engagements in Namkhan, Tamoenye, the Muse (105) mile trade post, near the toll plaza in Kyaukme and Laukkai areas in the northeastern part of Shan state. Similarly, Taze police station as well as seven points of Tigyaing, Sagaing region, and Mone area in Kyaukkyi Township, Bago Region, are being attacked. Moreover, a high school and Tronai security post in Pauk Taw of Rakhine State as well as the places near Moe Bye, the state’s police station and a high school in Loikaw of Kayah State have also been attacked. There are engagements in eight points of Kawkareik.     
  • During the clashes, terrorists of insurgents have faced heavy casualties. Since the Tatmadaw took retaliatory attacks on insurgents who attacked Kawkareik, the insurgents have faced heavy casualties that resulted in sending their members to the neighbouring country and undergoing medical treatment.
  • The residents of Kyaukme township noticed a terrible foul smell when they returned home in the town after they dodged violent clashes. When they attempted to find out the reason, they found many dead bodies in uniforms with TNLA, KIA, MNDAA and PDF badges near the Chinese cemetery of the town and had to remove the bodies with the help of security forces. Similarly, many other dead bodies in the same uniforms were also spotted on the downward road of Maung Phone Mountain. 
  • TNLA terrorists of insurgents blew up the Sint-in Bridge on Hsipaw-Lashio Union Highway.
  • Terrorists of insurgents have destroyed roads and bridges on Mandalay-Muse Union Highway connecting Myanmar and China in order to prevent rail and road communications. The MNDAA group has detained younger people among workers in Laukkai for recruitment purposes.
  • A PDF terrorist group gunned down U Than Tun, the Chairman of New National Democracy Party (NNDP), in Yangon. NUG and PDF terrorist groups are always making incitements via different places and varieties of media platforms to kill those who differ from their outlooks.
  • Terrorists of insurgents are using public buildings, and education and health facilities as covers in attacking the Tatmadaw. When the Tatmadaw fought them back, they were creating rumours, fake news and misinformation implying that the Tatmadaw was attacking the non-military targets of schools and hospitals.
  • According to military-related laws and regulations, in the case when the enemy carries out a shooting attack from a place which is regarded as a public building, the building will alternatively be presumed as a military target.
  • Regarding the armed conflicts in the northeastern part of Shan State, subversive media and others receiving assistance from Western countries are making incitements to ignite conflicts and misunderstandings between Myanmar and China.
  • The incitements and rumours of subversives from abroad and media outlets supported by Western countries have inflicted a large number of deaths in Myanmar.
  • The Government will inevitably pursue its goal to establish a federal system based on the multi-party democratic system and the Union system.

Since the national defence is the duty of every citizen, all citizens are required to safeguard our country in unity, it is reported.
