State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi attends 71st Kachin State Day ceremony in Myitkyina.
“I’d like to extend warm greetings to our children of the Union who are here with us at the Kachin State Day ceremony. It is our national pride to have a diverse gathering of ethnic nationals in one place. Our President U Win Myint has already talked at length of the need for union peace in his message of greetings so I won’t get too much into the subject. I want you all to think about the roots of the Manaw Grounds we are gathered in. Their beginning leads back to nat worshipping. Why did they worship nats? We worship the religion we believe in.”
