Khun Myint Tun Addresses Amnest International Political Prisoners Speaking Event December 10 2008,

……After Depayin Massacre in 2003, US Congress and President enacted “Burma Freedom and Democracy Act of 2003, Public Law 108-61, 108th Congress”. It is “to sanction the ruling Burmese military junta, to strengthen Burma’s democratic forces and support and recognize the National League of (for) Democracy as the legitimate representative of the Burmese People”.

In 2006, the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) expressly affirmed that “the will of the people is the basic of the authority of government and that the will of the people of Myanmar was clearly expressed in the elections held in 1990.” The General Assembly reaffirmed this finding in its most recent (2007-resolution, UNGA Res. 62.222)

To solve our country problem peacefully among many conflicts, we need a common ground and a guarantee. The question is who will give them to whom with what. Solving our political issues within the Parliament, which is based on 1990 election results, would be the best for our country. We can get a common ground and a guarantee from it.

As the General Assembly has stated in numerous resolutions, the junta, State Peace and Development Council (SPDC), continues to violate international law and treaties, domestic law including election law, and their agreements with the people. read all
