1. The Committee Representing Pyidaungsu Hluttaw formed with the elected parliamentarians chosen by the people through democratic election of 2020 gratefully welcome and support the adoption of the United Nations Security Council Resolution on the situation in Myanmar. We express our sincerest appreciation to the United Kingdom for its leadership in the process of drafting and adopting the resolution and to those who support in this wonderful work.
2. This resolution of the Security Council gives courage the people of Myanmar who are struggling over 20 months for democracy and is an initial step to stop inhumane atrocities by military junta in Myanmar. However, there is a pressing need of stronger and timely actions to cease the military junta’s escalated violence and to support the collective efforts of Myanmar’s people to restore democracy in the country.
3. In addition, the resolution calls “for concrete and immediate actions for implementation of the ASEAN Five Point Consensus and immediately release of all arbitrarily detained prisoners, including President Win Myint and State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi”. This is very welcomed and the very first priority to successfully implement ASEAN peace plan and democratic processes.
4. The resolution also calls to create “conditions necessary for voluntary, safe, dignified and sustainable return of Rohingya refugees and internally displaced persons” but the military junta is a key blocker for the processes of this implementation because they have committed genocidal acts against Rohingya and ethnic people and systematic attacks against to those who defend democracy and human rights in Myanmar.
5. The point for “full, safe and unhindered humanitarian access” and “scaled up humanitarian assistance to all people in need” must be necessarily implemented in time. This should be done together with our government formed by the CRPH exercising the electoral mandate of people through free and fair election – the National Unity Government, the Ethnic Resistance Organizations and other democracy forces in order to full and actual access assistance to those people in need.
6. We strongly agree with the call “to rebuild representative democracy institutions through dialogue and reconciliation based on the will and interest of the people of Myanmar – this is one of top priorities of our democratic alliances. On other side, the international family must effort to have justice for the people of Myanmar and to account military dictators for their crimes. This can only prove our unity of efforts to protect international peace, security and rule of law.
7. Here we strongly urge the Member States of the United Nations to prevent military junta’s brutal violence against Myanmar citizens have been increased every day by imposing further arms embargoes and new sanctions and, to support the development sectors in establishing a New State which ensure federalism and democracy in accordance with the will of the people of Myanmar.
