Mr President,
Myanmar consistently pursues anindependent and active foreign policy. Oneof the basic tenets of our foreign policy is toactively contribute towards the maintenanceof international peace and security. In sodoing, we encourage efforts to settledifferences among nations by peaceful andamicable means. This position of oursmatches well with the essence of one of thehigh-level themes of the current session,namely, “Settlement of disputes by PeacefulCoordination or Means.”
Mr President,
There exist differing views andassessments on the outcome of the United Nations Conference on SustainableDevelopment (Rio+20) held in Brazil inJune this year.

 President U Thein Sein delivers an address at 67 
United Nations General Assembly.—
Standing as a responsible and respectable nation on the world stage, wewill take challenges of 21
century in a bold and resolute manner
Myanmar will be participating more actively inactivities of United Nations in various fields
the sustainable development. It is necessaryfor the member states to turn these decisionsinto actions in order to leave behind thelegacy of a safe and sustainable environmentto our future generations.
Mr President,
Since becoming a member, Myanmar has always adhered to the founding principles of the United Nations. Our  participation in the General Assembly herein New York amply demonstrates our commitment to an active participation inand cooperation with the work of theOrganization.The world today is replete with newchallenges and opportunities. Urbanizationand industrialization are taking place indeveloping countries in an unprecedentedscale. The rapid progress in informationtechnology is giving an impression that our world is getting smaller. On the other hand,the natural environment and climate isencountering new threats and challenges.In short, the world is changing as never  before.In addition, it is also timely andappropriate to pay our attention to issueslike the post-2015 Development Agendaand Rule of Law during the current session.
Mr President,
Myanmar is making progress on her democratic path. But this has not been aneasy task. Therefore, I would like to take thisopportunity to share our experiences in thisregard.In the ongoing reform process, we arefacing challenges as well as opportunities.Within a short time, the people of Myanmar have been able to bring about amazingchanges. I feel greatly privileged andhonoured to dutifully serve the people astheir President at this crucial time in thehistory of our nation. I truly take my peopleas my own parents and elders.After taking office about 18 monthsago, the Parliament, the Judiciary, the ArmedForces, the national races, political parties,civil societies and the people at large have been taking tangible irreversible steps inthe democratic transition and reform process. Leaving behind a system of authoritarian government wherein theexecutive, legislative and judicial powerswere centralized, we have now been able to put in place a democratic government anda strong, viable parliament following a practice of check and balance.Despite the challenges, we can nowwitness encouraging progress andsignificant developments in the country.They include granting of amnesties to prisoners; the coming back with dignity of the exiled political forces; the successfulconvening of 2012 by-elections in a free,fair and transparent manner, the abolition of censorship of media, the fourth estate;freedom of internet access; the establishmentof workers’ and employers’ organizationsand the increased participation of the peoplein the political process.At the current stage of the political process, we can witness the emergence of democratic characteristics such as increasingof participation from different politicalforces and their mutual tolerance, themagnanimity, expansion of the scope of  political participation of an representationand the accountability. Our governmentand other stakeholders have now been ableto foster a new political culture of patienceand dialogue.
Mr President,
The then main opposition leader NobleLaureate Daw Aung San Suu Kyi is now participating in the Pyithu Hluttaw(Parliament) not only in her capacity as anMP (Member of Parliament) but also that of the Chairperson of the Rule of Law andStability Committee of the Parliament.During this week she is also in NewYork. As a Myanmar citizen, I would like tocongratulate her for the honours she hasreceived in this country in recognition of her efforts for democracy.

The political progress in our country is enhancing its political legitimacy. This, in turn facilitates the creation of  basic political stability thereby paving the way for economicand social transformation necessary for better livingstandard of the people.
Mr President,
The legislative body has also been progressive welland functioning more effectively at each session and the parliament has now been able to adopt landmark lawsthrough the democratic practices.Laws and bylaws are being promulgated bearing inmind that: the economic development must not lead to thewidening of the rich-poor gap; citizens’ rights are to be protected; the natural environment is to be preserved; our workers are to enjoy rights in line with internationalstandards. We are giving a careful attention to theinvestments in the extractive sector like the energy toensure transparency and impartiality.
Mr President,
We believe that cessation of all armed conflicts are a prerequisite for the building of genuine democracy. Assuch, we place high priority on achieving a lasting peacein the country. In accordance with our motto “From War to Peace”, we are working hard to bring an end thelongstanding difficulties in the regions of our ethnicnationalities. We have so far achieved ceasefire agreementswith 10 armed groups. While further strengtheningconfidence building measures, we will continue the peacetalks. National level peace negotiations will then continueto reach a final peace agreement that would completely endthe armed hostilities.In order to redress the situation in northern part of 
Myanmar will beparticipating moreactively in the activities...
Myanmar, the leaders of the Government Peace Work Committee and the Kachin armed group (KIA) are holdinginformal consultations and working to further strengthenthe confidence building measures. We consider any loss of life and property from either side in the armed conflict as aloss for the country.
Mr President,
While the Government is resolutely pursuing political,social and economic reforms, some unfortunate andunexpected issues have come up in our way. A case in pointis the recent communal violence in Rakhine State. In thisconnection, I would like to mention in the first place that the people inhabiting in our country, regardless of race, religionand gender, have the rights to live in peace and security.As you are aware, a national level independentinvestigation commission has been established toinvestigate the issue. To ensure impartiality, thecomposition of the Commission is made up of representatives from all strata of the society, includingthe widely-respected personalities from the Buddhist,Muslim, Christian and Hindu faiths. Upon completion of its task, the Commission will be submitting its findingsand recommendations to me.Demonstrating our determination to resolve the issuein a transparent manner, we have facilitated field visits tothe Rakhine State by the representatives from the OIC,ASEAN, UN agencies, the United States and residentforeign diplomats in Myanmar. When it comes to the relief assistance, access is being facilitated to those organizationswho are willing to provide it to both the communitieswithout discrimination.The issue at hand cannot be solved overnight.It will be resolved by taking short-term andlong-term measures through a multi-faceted approach takinginto account political, economic and social aspects. Isincerely believe that as an independent andsovereign state, Myanmar has the right to secure our  borders and also to safeguard and protect our sovereignty.We will do our utmost to solve this issue in line withinternational norms.
Mr President,
I am well aware of the fact that Myanmar’s democratictransformation process would be a complex and delicateone that requires patience. To complete this process, wecertainly need the understanding and support from theUnited Nations and its member states, the internationalcommunity as a whole and, last but not least, the people of Myanmar. At the same time, it is equally important thatMyanmar should be viewed from a different and new perspective. It is also necessary for us to be able to work in a more conducive and favourable environment thannever before.
Mr President,
Myanmar is now ushering in a new era. As a member in the family of nations, Myanmar will be participating moreactively in the activities of the United Nations in variousfields. Standing as a responsible and respectable nation onthe world stage, we will take the challenges of the 21
century in a bold and resolute manner.I would like to take this opportunity to congratulateSecretary-General Ban Ki-moon on his re-election and onhis achievements thus far.
Mr President,
Before concluding, allow me to mention briefly aboutan important figure. It is none other than U Thant, a brilliantson of Myanmar who had served as the third SecretaryGeneral of the United Nations. Even during his days, UThant had had a vision of “One World”. He envisioned aglobal society that is guided by a spirit of “One World”, aworld safe for diversity and a place of peaceful co-existencewhere global citizens practice the virtues of tolerance,cooperation, understanding and compassion. We believethat if we materialize his vision, we will be speedily achievinga state of the world which is more peaceful and prosperous.U Thant’s tireless endeavours for peace and hisachievements during his tenure as the Secretary-General of the United Nations will never be forgotten. The people of Myanmar will always take pride of and remember him as agreat son of Myanmar.I thank you.
