The army and the public are face to face regarding the military coup in Myanmar. At the same time, the United States is constantly monitoring this and is constantly reacting. In a statement, the US Secretary of State has spoken of standing with the people of Myanmar.
At the same time, the US has also deployed two additional officers in Myanmar to monitor the situation here.
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said that ‘America will continue to take strong action against those who are committing violence against the people of Myanmar. The people are demanding the restoration of their democratically elected government. We stand with the people of Myanmar.
Thousands of people gathered near the US embassy in Yangon on Monday to protest against the military coup, despite threats by military officer junta against protesters in Myanmar. Here the army not only blocked the way by putting a barrier but also sent riot police in about 20 trumps. But the protesters did not stop and they protested the arrests of their leader Aung San Suki and others.
Let me tell you, if the junta said that if the protesters went on a general strike against the military action, then force would be used on them. On the broadcaster MRTV, the junta made an official announcement late Sunday to take action against the strike. But apart from Yangon, people also held rallies in the capital Napita and Mandalay cities and opposed military rule. On Monday, the people under the banner of ‘Civil Disobedience Movement’ who led these demonstrations went on strike. It is noteworthy that three people have lost their lives in this movement that has been going on for the last several days.
The first high-level meeting of the United Nations’ top human rights body in 2021 began on Monday amid a military coup in Myanmar, the arrest of opposition leader Alexei Navalny in Russia, and heightened concerns over the situation in Ethiopia. Under this four-week session, many Presidents and Prime Ministers will be involved in ‘high level discussion’. It will also include the US, which withdrew from the Council two and a half years ago during the reign of former President Donald Trump. The council’s agenda tops the military coup in Myanmar earlier this month and violent actions to suppress the protests that followed.
