Myanmar junta chief says committed to restoring peace, democracy

Myanmar’s junta leader on Monday defended his military government’s actions in a regional peace plan and said it was seeking to restore order, but that its opponents were committing violence, which Asean should take notice of.

In a televised address, coup leader Min Aung Hlaing reiterated the junta’s five-step process toward restoring democracy, and said some of the things demanded by a special envoy of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) were non-negotiable.

It was Min Aung Hlaing’s first remarks since Asean agreed to sideline him from an upcoming over lack of progress in a peace roadmap.
