Kachin State Day ignored, commander uses inappropriate words

The Burmese military junta has completely ignored the Kachin State Day. The regime's military commander addressed the inaugural ceremony with inappropriate words in front of audiences at a special ceremony of the 60th anniversary of Kachin State Day, yesterday, sources said.

Maj-Gen Ohn Myint, commander of Kachin State (northern command) greeted the inaugural ceremony with romantic words "Ngou (wou) Ai Nii" in Chinese and "Nang hpe ngai tsawra ai" in Kachin, meaning "I love you" in English when he started to deliver his speech of about 15 minutes, said a local participant.

The commander's speech was delivered to thousands of majority Kachin participants at the special ceremony marking the 60th anniversary of Kachin State Day in Kachin National Manau Park in Myitkyina, capital of Kachin State, Northern Burma, the attendees said.

This is not the first times the Commander Maj-Gen Ohn Myint has spoken inappropriate words. He has already said several unacceptable words related to ethnic identity to native Kachins and Red Shans, said local sources.
