Chairman of the State Administration Council, Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Senior General Min Aung Hlaing gave exclusive interview to Phoenix Television network. The Senior General clarified that the SAC is formed with respectable civilians and senior military personnel.

They have taken the State responsibilities due to the electoral fraud in the November poll. After one-year state of emergency, it would be followed by fresh multi-party elections. “What we want to achieve is a federal state based on multi-party democracy and confederation.

If the situation permits, we hope to achieve this within a year, and if not, we will postpone it for six months. We needs cooperation of people, political parties and international community.” Relating Daw Aung San Suu Kyi’s political achievements, the SAC Chairman said: “According to her age and experience, she has done everything she can.” He also said “Aung San Suu Kyi is in good health. She’s been staying at home and will appear in court in a few days.” Regarding the fake news, Senior General Min Aung Hlaing disputed the death toll, estimating the number of deaths at 300 and saying 47 police had been killed and 200 injured.

In late April Senior General Min Aung Hlaing attended the ASEAN Summit where he welcomed the ASEAN heads of states and governments constructive discussion for political stability and national unity.  The ASEAN issued a “five-point consensus” statement in order to achieve consensus in the ASEAN way, according to the ASEAN Charter.

Myanmar is practicing the independent and active foreign policy and will receive the special envoy when the time is opportune.

Regarding foreign investment protection, the Senior General  told Phoenix TV that the SAC would focus on maintaining stability in the country while protecting foreign-funded enterprises, including Chinese investment. So far, China has invested more than US$20 billion dollars in 500 projects in Myanmar.
