Defense Minister says that some ASEAN countries are only interested in consolidating the military regime’s power

Union Minister for Defense U Yee Mon said that some ASEAN countries are only interested in consolidating the military regime’s power.

Union Minister said that at the beginning, ASEAN prohibited the military regime from attending summits, but these attitudes seemed to be changing. Some ASEAN countries are more interested in consolidating the military regime than in recognizing the Myanmar people’s aspirations for democracy.

Union Minister also said that inviting the military junta’s defense officials to the ASEAN Defense Senior Officers’ Meeting (ADSOM) in May and to the ASEAN Defense Ministers’ Meeting to be held during this month would tarnish ASEAN’s reputation and deny its due recognition to the Myanmar people.

The majority of the people of Myanmar continue to hold silent strikes, and street protests across the country to show that they don’t want to be ruled by the military regime.
