The United Nations Security Council condemns the violence against peaceful protesters in Myanmar. However, the UN Security Council made no mention of the Myanmar military’s plot on February 1, nor did it threaten sanctions. This report is a new piece of advice to those who overthrow the regime.
China, considered a traditional ally of the regime in Myanmar, also supports the UK-produced report.
This is the second time in more than a month that the Security Council has spoken unanimously and instructed the commanders who seized power in Myanmar. According to the generals, last year’s elections were not fair. In 2020, President Aung San Suu Kyi was re-elected by a large majority.
Since the coup on February 1, large demonstrations have been organized against the military junta and the strikes. In doing so, the security forces use violence against protesters. More than 60 activists are said to have been killed by security forces.
The United States has announced new sanctions against the country’s military junta in response to rising violence. The two children raised by military junta leader Min Aung Hlung and the six companies they control are on the blacklist. They can no longer access any money in the United States. Also, Americans are no longer allowed to do business with these individuals. With the punishments, Washington hopes the pressure on the military regime will increase.
