India in United Nations on Myanmar Issue: Ever since the Myanmar Coup in Myanmar, the military government has been using all kinds of violent methods to silence the protesters. Meanwhile, India said in the United Nations General Assembly meeting that restoring the democratic system in Myanmar should be the priority of all stakeholders and the detained leaders should be released. Together, he has called on the leadership of the South East Asian country to work together to resolve their differences in a ‘peaceful and constructive way’.
India’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Ambassador TS Tirumurti said this on Friday at an informal meeting of the General Assembly on the situation in Myanmar. The army was overthrown in Myanmar earlier this month. He said, ‘India shares land and sea borders with Myanmar and has a direct interest in maintaining peace and stability. Therefore, India is closely watching the recent developments in Myanmar. We are concerned that the progress achieved in Myanmar in the last decades in the direction of democracy should not be underestimated.
Democratic process should be maintained
Tirumurthy said that India believes that the rule of law and democratic process should be upheld, those detained should be released and peace should be maintained. “We call upon the leadership of Myanmar to work together to resolve their differences in a peaceful and constructive manner,” he said. On February 1, the army sacked Myanmar’s democratically elected government and took power in its hands. With this, State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi, President Yu Vin Mint and other top political leaders were arrested.
‘People should give support’
Thirumurthy said, ‘Restoring the democratic system should be the priority of all stakeholders in Myanmar (Myanmar Border With India)’. He said that the international community should extend its constructive support to the people of Myanmar at this critical juncture. In the meantime, Myanmar’s ambassador to the United Nations, ignoring the country’s military on Friday, urged the UN General Assembly to seek immediate international action to help end the military coup. KM Tun has been loyal to the ousted civilian government.
He said that he is representing the NLD-led civil government. Tun condemned the coup and appealed to all member nations and the United Nations to condemn the military coup and not to recognize military rule by any means (Myanmar News). He saluted with three fingers the protesters in Myanmar against the military rule and said, ‘We will continue the fight for a government that is for the people, by the people and for the people’.
‘Democratic processes were sidelined’
Christine S. Bergner, the Special Envoy of the United Nations Secretary-General on Myanmar, urged the General Assembly to collectively send a clear signal in support of democracy in Myanmar. He said, “At this time, democratic processes have been sidelined, elected leaders, including the State Counselor and the President of the Federal Republic, are in custody.” In his address on the issue of displaced people in the Rakhine State of Myanmar, Tirumurthy said that India has the highest interest in resolving the issue of displaced people to return to the country, as it is the only country that has both Bangladesh and Myanmar together. It is a long border.
