Nay Pyi Taw, April 29

Union Minister for Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement Dr. Win Myat Aye has stressed the role of international organizations working in Rakhine State in making the undertakings of the Union Enterprise for Humanitarian Assistance, Resettlement and Development in Rakhine State-UEHRD a success.

Speaking at the meeting with governmental officials working for stability and socio economic development in Rakhine State, MPs and representatives from communities in Rakhine State in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday, Union Minister Dr. Win Myat Aye conveyed the feeling of ethnic community in Rakhine State saying that ethnic communities considered the works of international organizations are unfair.

In his capacity as the Vice Chairman of UEHRD, the Union Minister said UEHRD is working for resettlement and rehabilitation of the displaced persons, for improvement of their socio economy, and for making Rakhine State free from conflicts. To achieve stability and socio-economic development in Rakhine State, security at border areas is important, he added.

“Despite challenges for security at the border, cooperation from ethic people of Rakhine, Daing Net, Khami, Maramargyi, Thet and Kaman and Hidus and Islamic communities is required,” said Dr. Win Myat Aye.

“Not only Islamic community there, but also ethnic minorities and Hindus are facing obstacles,” said the Union Minister.

“Free movement means travelling with documents and following local instructions and respecting the rule of law,” said the Vice Chairman of the UEHRD.
He also urged the media to release reports with accuracy and fairness, and to clearly understand what the authorities meant.

He also stressed the need to distribute the outcomes of the discussion of representatives from the government and different communities in Rakhine State after the meeting.
