Press Statement 

The acts of interference in the internal affairs which infringe on the State Sovereignty shall not be accepted

The draft resolution entitled “The Situation in Myanmar”, tabled by Liechtenstein was adopted by vote at the Plenary Meeting of the 75th Session of the United Nations General Assembly held in New York on 18 June 2021.

Myanmar rejects the said resolution as a whole since it is not only based on one-sided sweeping allegations and false assumptions which appears to be repeated and duplicated action on Myanmar but also targetting a country under the country-specific mandate. Accordingly, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs sent the letters of objection to the Secretary-General of the United Nations and the President of the General Assembly.

The participation and delivering statement as well as voting at the afore-said meeting by the former Permanent Representative of Myanmar U Kyaw Moe Tun, who was dismissed from his assigned duty in the morning of 27 February 2021, and currently under an arrest warrant for committing high treason, under the banner of Myanmar, did not represent the country and was illegal. Accordingly, his statement, participation and action in the meeting are illegitimate and unacceptable and Myanmar strongly rejects his participation and statements. 

While Myanmar embraces constructive advice by the international community in addressing the challenges that Myanmar is facing, any attempt infringing on the state sovereignty and interference in the internal affairs of Myanmar will not be accepted.

Myanmar will uphold world peace and friendly relations with nations and continue to work for lasting peace, stability and sustained development to the benefit of our national interests in line with the Foreign Policy of the State.
