Without National Reconciliation accord, Burma may not prevail over the current political and economic hardship. In one of her speeches Aung San Suu Kyi urged the people to work for democracy, but reminded them that democracy requires personal responsibility. "The rule of law means a system that provides security for the country and the people where everybody is equally protected within the framework of the law. But we must try hard to obtain democracy. Remember, nothing is free and nothing is easy. Democracy is not only your rights but there is also responsibility. Economics and politics are inseparable. A bad political system contributes to a bad economic system."
In conclusion, Asean leaders should not be taken in by the deceitful two-faced junta. The junta's generals are well-bred gentlemen in front of the Asean counterparts where as they are the inhumane tormenters to their own populace, especially upon the ethnic people.
