Speaking to thousands of troops at the annual Armed Forces Day celebration, Senior General Min Aung Hlaing said Wednesday that the military must strengthen its capabilities with modern weaponry and training. He also said the country would like to deepen military engagement with other countries, particularly within the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, and will abide by international human rights conventions.
