YANGON, Sept. 6 (Xinhua) -- Myanmar State Counselor's Office on Wednesday warned of incitement of tension and public unrest by possible extremist terrorists' attacks in major cities including Yangon, Nay Pyi Taw and Mandalay.

The aim of such attacks will be to attract international focus on and garner support for their activities in Maungtaw and Buthidaung in Rakhine state, the office said in a statement.

The statement called on the people to remain vigilant against such instigation.

It urged people to remain security conscious and report any suspicious persons, activity or irregularities in their areas to the nearest administration authorities or to security personnel.

The statement called for cooperation with the government in its efforts to maintain peace and stability across the country.

Extremist terrorists' renewed attacks continued in Rakhine state since Aug. 25, prompting the security forces to counter the offensive.
