1. Union Minister Dr. Zaw Wai Soe says that all the ethnic groups are engaging in the fight against the military dictatorship

At a town hall community with Myanmar diaspora in Australia, Union Minister Dr. Zaw Wai Soe spoke:

“If we consider whether our ethnic brothers are with us in military affairs or not, they are. Even though the military council claimed that they would seize Laiza, they were unable to accomplish so and instead suffered many losses. Two weeks ago, we managed to capture two of their bases in Kachin. As everyone knows, battles are being fought against them in Karenni as well. All in all, we have started to launch offensives and capture their bases. Our forces have begun to penetrate Myaing Town and Mone Town and have even taken over Mese Town.”

According to the Ministry of Defence, during the two years of the People’s Defensive War, about 9,900 instances of battles took place across the country, eliminating about 30,000 enemy soldiers.

3. Deputy Minister U Maw Htun Aung says that NUGPay is a fruit of the revolution brought about by institutional effort

Deputy Minister U Maw Htun Aung made a remark about NUGPay: “Institutions relate to both the internal workings of an organisation and its internal obligations, not only to the visible external structure of the organisation.

NUG pay is a fruit of the revolution brought about by the institutional effort.”
