Shortly after Khin Nyunt was appointed as Prime Minister, he announced a seven-point roadmap for the restoration of democracy; this roadmap was heavily criticized by the Burmese opposition as well as by many foreign governments especially Western ones as it envisaged a permanent military participation in the government.
On 18 October 2004, in a one-sentence announcement signed by SPDC Chairman Senior General Than Shwe, Khin Nyunt was "permitted to retire on health grounds.

Khin Nyunt said the rebels and "a misunderstanding by some Thai authorities who had relied on false information from the lower level Thai officials" was to blame for the border dispute.
We promote friendly relations with every country and abide by international rules and regulations," Khin Nyunt said at a ceremony to mark the end of teachers' training course on Monday at Phaunggyi, 60 kilometers north of Rangoon.
