The people who share such opinions are short-sighted, or simply cross-eyed. Q: You have strong ties with the Burmese democratic forces led by Burmans. What are the advantages and disadvantages of this? A: Well, as I always used to say, although we have been fighting with successive Burmese regimes for 50 years we have never seen the Burmese as our enemy. Our main enemies are the military cliques who practice the ideology of chauvinism. By having closer ties with the Burman-led democratic forces, there is a lot of mutual benefit, including a better understanding of each other’s problems. They come to know our suffering and our genuine desire to have peace and democracy. We also come to realize that they are people who struggle to promote this goal. With this in mind, we can be good friends for many generations to come. Q: Many of the top KNU leaders are reaching the age of retirement, are there any fresh faces to fill those shoes? A: There will always be young blood who love their people and their country enough to take up leadership responsibilities when the time comes.
