Source_Interview with Former Prime Minister of Malaysia: His Excellency Tun Dr Mahathir about Myanmar Politics from Perdana Leadership Foundation Library interviewed by Dr Abdul Rahman @ Ko Ko Gyi with the Pseudonym, Dr San Oo Aung

Introduction 

We easterners look up at H.E. Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with respect and praises and sometimes even jealously because Burma  lack a good leader with vision and ability like him.   H.E. Tun kindly allows Burma Digest to tap his Intellectual legacy and had given us some valuable advice on how to attain economic social and political progress of future Burma. Burma Digest hereby thanks Tun for being kind and generous enough to provide and share his huge invaluable thoughts, ideas and advises. Allowing Burma Digest to interview in spite of very tight schedules, meetings and interviews with world renowned journals and Broadcasting services and heated political battle he is facing at home means a great honour to us and he really  had taught us, the younger generation of Myanmar Intellectuals to understand the various aspects of politics. It is a great gift for the present Myanmar  Burmese scholars and thinkers of both side of the political divide. We hope Tun’s great intelligence and advice could help us to get a lasting peaceful resolution that is acceptable and beneficial to all the parties; present SPDC Military Junta, all the opposition groups and all the ethnic and religious minorities.
