United Nations. United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Gutarares vowed on Friday that the United Nations would do everything possible to create conditions that would pressure the international community to unite and withdraw the steps of the military coup in Myanmar. The UN chief said in a press conference that the implementation of the Security Council’s appeal for the restoration of democracy, respecting the outcome of the parliamentary election held in November, and the release of all those detained by the military “means the withdrawal of the coup. It is very important “. “We must put all kinds of pressure to make this possible,” Gutarais said.
On February 1, the Myanmar army announced that it was taking command of power for a year. He accused the government of the country’s top leader Aung San Suu Kyi of not investigating allegations of fraud in the November elections. Su Chi’s party had won in these elections. He has taken Sui Chi, other MPs, activists and journalists into custody. Gutarais said that UN Special Envoy for Myanmar Christine Schreiner Bergner contacted the military for the first time on Friday (5 February) after the coup and expressed strong UN opposition to the development.
Earlier in an interview, Antonio Guterres pledged to seek help from the international community to ‘thwart’ the Myanmar Coup in Myanmar. He said that it is unfortunate that the Security Council has not united to deal with the crisis. After the military took control of power in Myanmar, a meeting of the United Nations Security Council was held on 2 February to discuss the situation. “Unfortunately, the Security Council could not unite in this regard and we will seek the help of key countries in the international community to put enough pressure on Myanmar to thwart the coup,” Gutaras said in an interview to The Washington Post.
Gutareis 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 allegations against 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. . “
