Nay Pyi Taw, 21 July — Commander-in-Chief of Defence Service Senior General Min Aung Hlaing has refuted rumours he will retire this year, recently telling a BBC interviewer  that such reports are unfounded.
He will turn 60, retirement age for government employees in Myanmar, in 2016.
Asked whether he would like to serve as the country’s president if the situation demanded, the senior general said he would perform any duty assigned to him as a member of the defence forces.
During the interview, the senior general spoke about the reform process, the role of the Tatmadaw in politics, the nation-wide ceasefire agreement, the upcoming general election and the situation in Rakhine State. Myawady
