The Amyotha Hluttaw on Tuesday approved the creation of an inter-parliamentary body aimed at fostering dialogue between elected officials in Myanmar and Belarus.
The Upper House gave the green light to formation of the Belarus-Myanmar Inter Parliamentary Friendship Group and received the list of its membership during the session. Concerning the plantation of perennial plants and trees along Yangon-Mandalay Expressway, Deputy Minister for Construction U Soe Tint told the Upper House trees will be cultivated in the rainy season of June, July and August.  The house also approved the second amendment of laws on electoral systems of the Pyithu Hluttaw and Amyotha Hluttaw, as well as state and regional Hluttaw.  U Myo Myint, MP of Mandalay Region constituency 6, urged the Union government to draft a master plan for river water conveyance to address the problems of drought in hot season and floods in rainy season in central and southeastern parts of the country. The Amyotha Hluttaw agreed to discuss the proposal.
U Hla Swe, MP of Magway Region constituency 12, then called for the Union government to take decisive action on boat people. He asserted that boat people should not be regarded as refugees or asylum seekers as they were moving to other countries for better livelihoods, and that a fixed term of two weeks or one month should be set for their repatriation to address the concerns of Myanmar people. The house also agreed to discuss the proposal.
