(VII) Citizens of border areas enjoy rights and privileges considered fundamental in democratic countries. III) This Council is assisted by two alternate councillors representing races of which it is not a member.

While the two deputy advisers should deal first with the issues of each area and with the advisers of all the remaining parts of the border areas, they should, through the Constitutional Convention, act on the principle of cohesive responsibility. A conference was held in Panglong, attended by some members of the Executive Council of the Governor of Burma, all Saohpas and representatives of the Shan, Kachin hills and Chin Hills, convinced that the freedom of the Shans, Kachins and Chins will be achieved more quickly through their direct cooperation with the Burmese transitional government. (VI) Although the question of the delimitation and creation of a separate Kachin State within a single Burma is an issue that must be deferred to the decision of the Constituent Assembly, it is agreed that such a State is desirable. Initially, the Border Council and deputy councillors in the management of these areas are consulted in Myitkyina District and Bhamo District, as are the second part of the areas provided for by the Government of Burma Act 1935. This day is celebrated every 12 February in Myanmar as Union Day. [1] (IV) While the Councillor, as a member of the Executive Council, will be the sole border representative on the Council, the Deputy Councillor is authorized to participate in Council meetings when border area issues are discussed. (V) Although the Governor`s Executive Board is expanded as agreed above, it will not act in any way with respect to border areas, which deprives some of these areas of the autonomy it now enjoys in internal administration. Full autonomy in the internal management of border areas is accepted in principle. (II) This council is also appointed a member of the Executive Council of the Governor without portfolio and, as in the case of defence and outer space, the issue of border areas is placed under the responsibility of the Executive Council by the constitutional convention.
