The Myanmar government will form more anti-riot squads and give them training in accordance with international standards, official media reported Thursday, citing a Myanmar Home Ministry official.

Disturbance acts by illegal organization could negatively impact the interest of the country and the people, warned Deputy Home Minister Brigadier-General Kyaw Zan Myint at the ongoing seventh session of the House of Representatives, or Lower House, on Wednesday.

"Police battalions had been formed to quell violence and riots and plans were underway to form one more battalion in Meikhtila and to add three more security companies to auxiliary forces in Nay Phi Taw and states and regions," he said.

"After modifying the current anti-riot manual, police forces in states and regions would be trained in accordance with the new manual and training courses organized by Myanmar Police Force," he added.

The training courses will be conducted with the help of Australia and the European Union, a parliament member was quoted as saying.

The Myanmar government claimed that its law enforcement agencies have made some achievements in rule of law and suppression of crime in more than two years since the newly elected civilian government came to office, according to the Information Ministry.

Over the period, the government's security and law enforcement agencies were able to deal with a series of violence by unscrupulous persons and organizations, aimed at undermining the country's security, rule of law and regional peace and tranquillity, the ministry said on its website.

The seventh regular session of Myanmar's two houses started on June 25, which was followed by the Union Parliament session involving both Houses beginning July 1.

Meanwhile, an interim meeting of the National Defense and Security Council (NDSC) was held to discuss the peace process of the government's Peace Making Committee as requested by Speaker for the Lower House USwe Mann.
