Acting President Duwa Lashi La said at the 74th Cabinet Meeting of the National Unity Government on November 15 that the NUG government would like to work together with ASEAN in solving the issues of Myanmar.

“The most recent ASEAN summit resulted in some positive outcomes for our National Unity Government and the Myanmar Spring Revolution. I understand that this is due to the efforts of the members of the National Unity Government and the political zeal of all citizens of Myanmar. In solving the issue of Myanmar, our government emphasizes the political consensus of the people of Myanmar, and I would like to reiterate that our government wants to cooperate with ASEAN,” said the Acting President.

In addition, the Acting President added that the National Unity Government welcomes and recognizes East Timor, which has reached an agreement to become the 11th member of ASEAN.

 

The NUG Minister of Human Rights says that there is absolutely no reason for the Spring Revolution to fail

U Aung Myo Min, Union Minister of Human Rights, commented on the anti-military youth strike in November that there was absolutely no reason for the Spring Revolution to fail.

“I praise the young people and their ideas that are not included in Gene Sharp’s political defiance methods that I studied in the 1988–1990s. The revolution of the people, whose spirit is strong and whose ideas are full of excitement, is absolutely not going to fail,” said the Union Minister.

In the military coup of February 1, 2021, the Spring Revolution emerged along with the public movement against the military dictatorship.

 

The plan of the military council to deceive the international community and the public will no longer succeed

U Naing Htoo Aung, Secretary of the Ministry of Defense of the National Unity, said at the “Decisional Battle in which the people are participated” discussion held on November 14 that the plan of the military council to deceive the international community and the public will no longer succeed.

“Military affairs have become an integral part of the process of revolutionizing the military council and establishing a federal democracy union. Military affairs are important at the moment. Another thing is that the military council’s attempt to deceive the international community and the public is now at the stage where its results are no longer successful,” he said.

At present, the leaders of the terrorist military council are not allowed to attend ASEAN meetings and related meetings.

The ambassador stated that after the illegal military coup, there were 84 people on death row who were subject to the lawless killings by the military junta.

In addition, the ambassador U Kyaw Moe Tun also stated that the Myanmar military is using the death penalty based on discriminatory laws that target a person’s fundamental rights.

 

Two civilians who were returning from feeding cows outside the village were killed by artillery shells fired by the 550 Battalion of the junta military based in Ponnagyun

When they were returning, an artillery shell exploded close to them, fired by Ponnagyun based Battalion 550. Aye Soe Thien died as a result of the explosion, having been fatally injured in the head. Kyar Chay was further seriously injured, having broken his collarbone and dislocated his right hip, and died on the way to the hospital.”

Since the military coup, a total of 2,451 people have been killed during the spring revolution.

In addition, the MNOU will continue to offer core curriculum courses for those who have already completed their basic education and short courses for all the people who want to study knowledge and vocational skills.”
