Myanmar ruling military respects its neighbours and the international community but will forge ahead with objectives it set out when it took power last month, a spokesman said on Thursday.

"We will hold an election and we will hand over to the wining party," military spokesman Brigadier General Zaw Min Tun told a news conference. "We respect neighbouring countries and international community but we will continue with our five objectives."

The military also respects and values media freedom and has only arrested journalists who were inciting unrest, he said.
