Newly appointed commander of western command  General Aung Lin Dwe visited several areas along the western Burma border adjacent to Bangladesh  and during his visit the commander inspected many armed force outposts located in the frontier areas of  Maungdaw township in Arakan to Palatwa township of Chin State.

It was his first visit to the locality after he was empowered on 1 July with the position in place of  General Ko Ko Naing, who has been shifted to the Shan State of Burma, said official sources.

General Aung Lin Dwe also inspected the border fencing erected along the border with Bangladesh.

A local resident informed that commander visited some Rakhine villages under Maungdaw township namely Taungbro sub-township, Wet Kyin, Nga Khura, Wrat Nyo Daung and Kyint chaung where he also donated some materials to the villagers.

The change of guards in the western command has taken place immediately after General Maung Maung Own was appointed as the Arakan State government chief.

The Arakan State parliament had approved General Own as the chief minister of Arakan on 30 June and he took oath in the Arakan parliament on 2 July last.
