1. Acting President Duwa Lashi La says that the Spring Revolution has gained some good from the bad

At the Cabinet Meeting held on January 24, Acting President Duwa Lashi La said:

“In my opinion, the Spring Revolution has gained some good from the bad. In the past, there were many political leaders who rejected the armed resistance revolution. Now, in the current period, they have come to know through experience that they will have to focus on the armed path to eradicate the military dictatorship. In fact, we all are people who want to solve political problems at the table. But Myanmar military leaders had pushed the situation to the point where the people would have to take up arms and defend themselves. So, I would like to say clearly that they must finish the drama that they have started.”

Furthermore, the Acting President also stated that the National Unity Government will try to make the defensive war even more successful.
