Founding of Wa State can spark confusion



Shaung Milyan, vice-chairperson of United Wa State Army (UWSA), demanded that the Wa self-administered division be upgraded into a state during a meeting with the government’s union level peace working committee in Panhsang of Wa Special Region (2), Shan State, on May 10.


UWSA, the largest of the armed ethnic groups in Myanmar, has reiterated the demand, which it has made since 2012.

Regarding the Wa’s demand, one Lower House MP said granting it without thorough analysis could make the country’s situation more confusing.

“In my opinion, it is too early to satisfy their demand. This issue must be discussed in a close-door meeting in Parliament. Are those living in the Wa region are genuine Wa nationals? It is necessary to monitor whether there are manipulators behind the demand. If it is granted without analysis, there will be confusion,” MP Kyi Myint said.

Some fear that the upgrading of the Wa self-administered division to a state might change the union pattern of Myanmar as the administrative board of the Wa region uses Chinese as an official language and only 30% of the population use Bamar language and other ethnic dialects.

Sao Aung Myint from Shan Descendent Force said: “The issue is not possible yet although they have the right to demand. Our country is multi-national. Various ethnic groups live in Shan State. If the Wa is allowed to form an autonomous state, the whole union will be in a state of fragility.” Continue reading “Founding of Wa State can spark confusion”

A boat carrying nearly sixty Bengali refugees capsized as it was being pulled by a motorboat manned by government officials.

The move was to protect the refugees from cyclone Mahasen by relocating them from Pauktaw Village to Sintatmaw Village. Six other motorboats made it to the destination safely.

The capsized boat clashed with a rock near at the confluence of Kalaton river and Kyaeku river.

Forty-two Bengalis from the capsized boat were saved and sent to the police station of Pauktaw Township.

Rescued teams were conducted search and rescue of the missing Bengalis.

Refugees from two IDP camps located in Kyautphy Township are safely moved to the temporary camps in Kanyintaw village on May 12.

Refugees from the area that cyclone can hit are safely moved to the monasteries, schools and IDP camps away from the weather forecasts.

Possible ways to solve the clashes that had broken out between the Democratic Karen Buddhist Army (DKBA) and Border Guard Force (BGF) under the Ministry of Defense is to raise the case with the Union Peacemaking Committee, Aung Naing Oo of Myanmar Peace Center said.

Clashes of three days between the DKBA and the BGF broke out in the last week of April. To examine these clashes, Dr. Min Zaw Oo of Ceasefire of Myanmar Peace Center and Aung Naing Oo of Peace dialogue held meeting with representatives from the DKBA and the BGF at Myawady on May 11.

“We asked the area commanders of the DKBA and the BGF over the prevailing latest situation. We urged them to avoid clashes in the future. But sometimes misunderstanding can crop up at the grass-root level. It is necessary to handle the situation with great care,” Aung Naing Oo said.

“Everyone wants to address the situation. We will have to help to hold peace dialogue. I will present the reports on ways and means to settle the situation to the committee,” he added.

On April 27 and 28, the clashes between the BGF and the DKBA broke out. Under the pretext of Hatkyi dam, the army informed the DKBA troops to move from there, thus leading to the tension between them.

Chairman of National Disasters Preparedness Central Committee Vice President U Nyan Tun and officials from the Management Committee are going to make close supervision based in Ann of Rakhine State starting from the 14th.
Military aircrafts, helicopters, vessels and vehicles are getting ready for evacuation and medical teams and other supportive teams were also formed.



Nay Pyi Taw, 14 May

“Natural disaster is unpreventable. It needs to overcome the disasters with least damages through preparedness,” President U Thein Sein said at the coordination meeting for  Cyclone Mahasen held at the meeting hall of Union government at the Presidential Palace here this morning.

It was also attended by Vice-Presidents Dr Sai Mauk Kham and U Nyan Tun, the Union ministers, deputy ministers and departmental heads.

In his opening speech, the President said that the news on the Cyclone “Mahasen” is likely to cross between the west coasts of Rakhine and Bangladesh on 15 and 16 May, has been released. It is difficult to predict the storm as it can turn to the low pressure areas. Myanmar had experience of the storm “Nargis” hit in Ayeyawady Region on 2 May, 2008.

Necessary preparations are being made as the direction of the storm “Mahasen” is likely to turn to other states and regions. Officials have been instructed to carry out necessary preparedness in Magway Region.


There are four-step measures: preparedness  before the storm, tasks during the storm, recues and relief and rehabilitation after the storm.

It needs to carry out systematic measures. After the storm “Nargis”, National Disaster Preparedness Central Committee and work committee were formed and standing orders have been issued.

Maungtaw and Sittway in Rakhine State are most disaster-prone areas. There are over 100,000 victims in Sittway, Myebon, Pauktaw and Kyaukpyu townships. Among them, 40,000- 50,000 victims are in Sittway. Some victims are living at makeshift camps while others have been moved to the safe buildings.
