"We have to send the lists to the Olympic Committee in Myanmar after securitising the strength of media who are allowed. For example, how many Singaporean visitors will come? So also how many Malaysian and Thailand visitors? The lists of visitors such as coaches, managers, media, athletes, medical boards must be sent for official approval by the Olympic Committee," said Htay Aung, Minister for Sports.
