NAY PYI TAW, May 13 (Xinhua) -- Myanmar's Commander-in-Chief of the Defense Services Senior-General Min Aung Hlaing Friday voiced support of constitution amendment on condition that the country becomes politically stable.

"We've never said not to amend the constitution, but we will do when time is appropriate and politically stable," Min Aung Hlaing told a press conference here.

He said he will not retire at age of 60 now when asked, adding that when eternal peace is achieved with armed groups, the military is likely to withdraw its 25-percent presence in the parliament.

He said the military is working to realize national reconciliation and peace within the new government's five-year term as directed by President U Htin Kyaw and will cooperate with the civilian government under the head of state.

He added that the military will coordinate with State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi in working for the interest of the nation.

He denied the allegation that the military clashed with armed groups that have signed ceasefire accord with the government.
