Title: Have positive attitude to things
Date of publication: 21 August 2009
Description/subject: "...During and after the trial against Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and Mr Yettaw, our country came under pressure put and attacks launched by elements inside and outside the country, which is common knowledge. They claimed that the accused were charged, put on trial and punished according to the expired constitution, so the government took unjust action. In reality, the laws remain in force so long as the ruling government revokes and dissolves them and their provisions are not contrary to the present constitution. I do not want to make further clarification to that. Prison terms were sentenced to the accused as the legal proceedings are in conformity with the law and they were found guilty. It is very welcoming that the Head of State commuted the terms with consideration. I would say it is positive attitude showed looking forward to positive results..."

Description/subject: "Loving-kindness attracts loving-kindness" Mahn Tha Sein (Papun) ["...Issuing the directive, the Head of State not only respected the law but also expressed consideration towards Daw Aung San Suu Kyi to his highest degree for her comfort and convenience. In the international arena, the ruling government not only exercised the jurisdiction skillfully, but also relieved the concerns of the foreign countries and regional countries that favour the interest of Myanmar.

Title: Ministry of Foreign Affairs releases Press Statement [No. 5/2009] in response to the declaration of EU Presidency
Date of publication: 15 June 2009
Description/subject: "The European Union (EU) Presidency issued a declaration on 11th June 2009 voicing its unwarranted concern at the alleged mounting offensive of the Myanmar Army and its allies against the Karen National Liberation Army (KNLA) in the Myanmar-Thai border areas which resulted in large numbers of so-called civilians fleeing from the conflict area in Kayin State to Thailand. It is quite obvious that the EU's declaration must have been based on inaccurate news emanated from the insurgent groups. The tone and tenor of the declaration obviously reflects the total ignorance of EU Presidency on the true facts and main causes of the clashes between the two factions of the armed groups..."
