Bangladesh has an opportunity to internationalize the Myanmar issue
The political situation in neighboring Myanmar is gradually becoming complicated. Myanmar is not a modern and democratic state in the sense of what we call a modern state in the light of the Western framework. Myanmar is a very fluid state. It is a country that has always had internal political crises and conflicts. Sometimes more, sometimes less. But the state has always gone through complications. Myanmar could not develop in the same way as the modern democratic state is built. The people of Myanmar could not create the country as a single nation-state. The country has constantly been tormented by ethnic conflicts between the Karen, Kuki, Chin, Wah, etc. Notably, these conflict-causing groups have never sought complete independence for their controlled territories. Instead, they want to grab a larger share of autonomy. Revenue collection is one of the foremost sources of strength for the state. And the conflicting groups have been demanding a stake in it.
