Call to help restore democracy in Myanmar

Kathmandu, September 16 :

Dr Tint Swe, a leader of the National League for Democracy and Burmese Minister in Exile, said at a political programme organised in the capital today that he had come here “seeking support and solidarity of the Nepal government and the Nepali people for the restoration of democracy in military-run Myanmar”.

“Some months ago, Nepal was in the headlines. We were overwhelmed when we read in the media about the uprising of the people against the autocratic regime.”

The minister said he had met Prime Minister Girija Prasad Koirala and plans to meet other political leaders.

The military regime has been ruling the country for over a decade.
