Thein Sein Outlines Arakan Plan

Burma’s President Thein Sein told reporters on Wednesday that the government will pursue a four-point plan aimed at resolving the bitter divisions between Muslim and Buddhist communities in Arakan State, Mizzima reported. The plan will involve changing people’s prejudices, promoting education, creating jobs and introducing a program of birth control—which was supposedly necessary as the state has a high birth rate. “We must make people empathize with each other,” the president said, as he explained the plan during a press conference at the Asean Summit in Cambodia.
