Burma Democratic Concern (BDC): Don’t Use Chemical Weapons

Burma Democratic Concern (BDC): Don’t Use Chemical Weapons

6th June 2011

Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) calls for the U Thein Sein’s the authoritarian regime not to use Chemical Weapons fighting against ethnics opposition groups and ultimately Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) earnestly calls for the all the parties concerned to work restoring peace in Burma.

U Myo Thein, the Director of the Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) said that “Firstly, we don’t want war in Burma. We don’t want battles or we don’t want fighting and killing each other. Since all the ethnics people of Burma are living on the very same land under the very same sky, we should find out peaceful solutions through dialogue”.

Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) expresses very serious concern over the reports that Burmese Army is using Chemical Weapons in fighting against Shan State Army.

U Khin Maung Win, the Director of the Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) said that “We are very concerned over the reports of using Chemical Weapons by the Burmese army. Chemical Weapons shouldn’t be used not only in Burma but also in the world at large”.

The SSA’s strategic base which is located seven miles south of Mong Gao in Tangyan Township is attacked by the Burma Army which is accused to be using Chemical Weapons because of which on explosion caused dizziness and nausea, according to Col Perng Fa of SSA liaison team.

U Tint Swe Thiha, the Patron of the Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) said that “If the report of using Chemical Weapons by Burma Army turns out to be true then United Nations Security Council should step in intervening Burma crisis”.

The recent breaking of a 15-year ceasefire between the Burmese government and SSA-North has triggered fighting in Shan state.

SSA-North once accomplished ceasefire with Burmese government aiming to solve the problems by political means.

On 21 May 2011, SSA-South and SSA-North declared that they have re-united to fight against the Burmese military.

Shan State Army widely known as SSA has been fighting against central government in order to have autonomy for more than five decades.

Tens of thousands of civilians have been forced to flee their homes ending up in refugee camps while others are forced into hiding in the jungles as the internally displaced people, IDPs.

Daw Khin Aye Aye Mar, the Patron of the Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) said that “Burma crisis has been happening for more than half the century. International Community has been overlooking Burma crisis for far too long and I would like to say that “This time is for BURMA” to take action on Burma. Even though we are well aware that Burma is not located in Middle East rich in oils resources but situated right next to China, it shouldn’t be the shameful excuse over-sighting to take action on Burma”.
