Legal affairs & special cases commission chairman addresses at 17th Doha Forum

 May 15, 2017
At 17th Doha Forum, Thura U Shwe Mann, Chairman of Legal Affairs and Special Cases Assessment Commission, Pyidaungsu Hluttaw discussed matters on Transformation in Myanmar Political Landscape.

Chairman of Special Commission said, “Currently the world is paying much attention today to the refugee issue. The refugee issue has great impact on related countries politically, economically and socially. Myanmar also puts great importance on this issue, which we are handling with it sensitively. Now Union Peace Conference has been convened so as to extinguish the armed conflicts which started with our independence in 1948, now approaching their 70th year. Due to various factors of poverty, lower standard in education, slow development and lack of mutual belief which started many years ago, Rakhine State Affairs which attracted global attention now escalated its existing tensions in the region.

Presently the Central Committee for the Implementation of Peace and Development in Rakhine State, led by State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi has been dealing with these problems. The government is placing great importance on the provision of humanitarian assistance in that area, together with better health care, better education, better infrastructure and the speedy completion of the citizenship verification process. The government also is implementing the recommendations of the interim report of Advisory Commission on Rakhine State led by Dr Kofi Annan, the former UN Secretary General. There have been allegations of human rights violations, which the commission led by Vice-President U Myint Swe is investigating very seriously in Rakhine State as well as in the refugee camps in Bangladesh. If anyone is found to have committed violations, justice will be done in accordance with the law. Now, Myanmar is endeavoring for internal peace, national reconciliation and building a federal democratic union, making an effort to become a country of freedom, equality and justice and a country that is responsible and accountable. And we are also trying to be actively involved in the promotion of regional security and stability and the building of a peaceful, secure and developed world.”

17th Doha Forum will be held at Sheraton Hotel, in Doha, Carter from May 14 to May 15, attended by leaders from the countries, Speakers of the Parliaments, representatives from international and regional organizations, amounting to 600 or so in all.
