Welcomes statement to Mr. Suthin's consideration on Thai policy towards Rangoon

National Coalition Government of the Union of Burma, Bangkok Post, 10 February 1995

  1. We, National Coalition Government of the Union of Burma, appreciate and welcome the consideration of Mr. Suthin, the chairman of House Foreign Affairs Committee regarding Thailand's against Burma, which he thinks should be reviewed.
  2. The recent SLORC's military offensives against the KNU headquarters and other strongholds through out Thai-Burma border have proved that it is not only internal affairs of Burma but also it is an obvious threat to the peace and security and stability of the neighbouring countries.
  3. Since the year 1988, when the SLORC took over the power of the country, they always used to print and publish in State-owned newspaper (The Working People's Daily) then and now (The New Light of Myanmar) that their nobel desire is an early transfer of power. Bur their current activities show a vent diverse between their words and deeds.
  4. Refusal of the respect to the result of 1990 elections, the continued detention of the public leader, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and its current response towards the genuine national reconciliation and the recent military offensives against the headquarters of democratic opposition groups and KNU have revealed the fraus intension of SLORC.
  5. Regarding the battles through Thai-Burma border and the refugee affairs, the standing of US and Australia governments are really very encouraging and helpful for democracy movement of Burma.
  6. We strongly believe that the Government of Thailand will retain its tradition of good will towards the Burmese refugees. 7. At the same time we would like to say that the felling of Burmese people is the same to Mr. Suthin Nophaket and we hope that the Government of Thailand will review its constructive engagement policy and will lay down an appropriate policy which will be beneficial for both nations.
