Dr. Win Myat Aye addressed at the general debate of the assembly regarding on the theme “Parliamentary Diplomacy: Building bridges for peace and understanding” on 26 March 2024. 

The following summary are included in the speech by Myanmar delegation leader:

“In today’s world, due to many countries facing armed-conflicts, the global economy, security and peace and civilian lives are harming. The length and intensity of and the inability to stop or lessen armed conflicts, means that the challenges to peace, human rights and development increase exponentially. We also need to promote our contribution in diplomacy to help resolve this problem happening in our world. Like many people from conflict-affected countries, the people of Myanmar ask for  your help to reduce the pain being perpetrated upon them by the brutal military junta. They need your support for their efforts in ending the illegal military rule in Myanmar and in building a peaceful society which respects international human rights and law. Since the military couped in 2021, 2.7 million people have been forced to flee from their homes to escape the military junta’s onslaught of air and artillery strikes, executions and killings, rapes, torture, arbitrary detentions, enforced disappearances and persecution. At the present, nearly 19 million people are now in need of humanitarian assistance, that includes 6 million children. The recent military junta announcement to uplift the conscription law despite no external threat has served to accelerate displacement. We are leading and collaborating with our people to end the military junta’s illegal rule, to end the violence, to restore peace and parliamentary democracy. At the same time, we are working hand-in-hand with the country’s stakeholders to find a solution to the current political situation. Military junta have lost several territories and troops by the nationwide anti-coup resistance. The democratic forces including the elected lawmakers are securing our common goals to lay the groundwork to create a peaceful society for all Myanmar people.”

On 24 and 25 March, Myanmar delegation had a separate bilateral meeting with Timor-Leste, German, Indonesia, Malaysia, Germany and explained about the changed situation in Myanmar, the atrocities increasingly committed by military junta and urged to cooperate and help on Myanmar democracy movement.
