1. The Committee Representing Pyidaungsu Hluttaw (CRPH) congratulates all AIPA Member Parliaments for the successful completion of the 44th AIPA General Assembly particularly the host parliament, the Indonesia House of Representatives which adopted thirty resolutions including the Resolution on Parliamentary Cooperation in Contributing to Long-lasting Peace in Myanmar.
2. We thank all leaders of the parliamentary delegations to the General Assembly for your expressions of concerns and commitments to Myanmar’s situation.
3. We also thank all AIPA Member Parliaments for the successful adoption of the resolutions which would support the drive to secure the sustainable development, maintenance of peace, stability and prosperity in our region, Southeast Asia and beyond.
4. We reiterate our thanks and add our deep appreciation for the Resolution on Parliamentary Cooperation in Contributing to Long-lasting Peace in Myanmar that demonstrated a collective unity of the parliamentarians of ASEAN.
5. We, the democratically elected representatives of the people of Myanmar, wish to express our commitment to work together with all AIPA Member Parliaments and parliamentary fellows in ASEAN for the regional challenges and development that we all desire.
6. Regarding our work to further the long-lasting peaceful solution for Myanmar, it is based on the will of the people of Myanmar. That is given voice in our political road map that has two essential political planks and they are to return to civilian government and to establish an inclusive federal democracy in Myanmar.
7. We welcome the decision of the AIPA Parliaments to explore the possibility of establishing a suitable mechanism to monitor the implementation of the Five-Point Consensus as well as engage with AIPA Observer Parliaments in gathering multilateral humanitarian assistance for the people of Myanmar and affirm our readiness to work with the AIPA and the Mechanism. We highlight the urgency of establishment of the AIPA Mechanism because the unlawful military junta has significantly increased their atrocities against civilian population.
8. However, there has a little progress during over two years period, we have acknowledged the ASEAN Five-Point Consensus (5PC) as ASEAN’s valid reference and all efforts of ASEAN Chairmanship although non-cooperation by military junta.
9. Therefore, we respectfully request that the AIPA Member Parliaments urge their respective governments to collaborate among member states for the timely and effectively implementations of the ASEAN Five-Point Consensus (5PC).
10. We acknowledge that parliamentarians in ASEAN have a critical role while ASEAN has faced several challenging issues. We acknowledge that the AIPA is our common platform to help resolve the challenges in our region as we have established AIPA for all citizens in ASEAN.
11. However, we need more actions to help secure regional peace, stability, security and development which must be done by strategic collaboration among member parliaments.
12. We, the legitimate representatives elected in the 2020 general election by the people of Myanmar, are working together with all democratic stakeholders in the country to end the ongoing crisis and to establish a new Myanmar with a new system and international human rights values, invite again all AIPA Member Parliaments and Observers to work with us to end illegitimate and undemocratic military rule, its nationwide atrocities and to bring lasting peace and stability to Myanmar.
