In Myanmar, the army took power under its control and detained State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi, President Yu Vin Mint and other top leaders of the country. Sui Chi is accused of illegally importing a walkie-talkie and can be held in custody till 15 February. Guterres said in an interview to The Washington Post, “Unfortunately the Security Council could not unite in this regard and we will seek the help of key countries of the international community to put enough pressure on Myanmar to thwart the coup”.
Guterres said that after the November elections in Myanmar were ‘peacefully concluded’ it was ‘completely unacceptable’ to reject the election results and public scrutiny. The Security Council has not yet issued any statement on the situation in Myanmar. Guterres said in the interview, ‘If we can make any accusation on Suu Kyi, it is that she was very close to the army and she defended the army very much for the military operation against Rohingya which led to a large number of migrations from there. .
He said that Su Chi defended the army even in international court. He said, ‘So if we can make any allegations against her, it is that she was very close to the army. The coup is completely unacceptable and I hope that democracy will once again progress in Myanmar. He said that to achieve this all prisoners should be released and the constitutional system should be restored. He hoped that the international community would unite on this issue.
