The people in line with Myanmar’s diplomatic policies continue to face hurdles as the civilian leader and ambassador to London Aung San Suu Kyi, was left locked out in the streets. Britain has condemned the act of an extraordinary diplomatic coup removing the ambassador and mentioned it as “bullying”.
“Please assist our country and help our country as without international assistance, we will not be able to get out of this mess,” the ambassador told reporters outside the embassy.
The ambassador was withdrawn from his duties by the junta for supporting the disposed and military opposed party NLD. On Thursday, Britain confirmed that they were unable to recognize the ambassador in London. The military issued a formal notification, and soon the leader was on the streets outside the Myanmar embassy in London.
“We condemned the bullying actions of the Myanmar military regime in London yesterday, and I pay tribute to Kyaw Zwar Minn for his courage,” Raab said on Twitter.
The political and military conditions in Myanmar are worsening with each passing day.
News sources such as Myanmar Now and Irrawaddy News said that the protestors fought back against the coup with homemade knives, guns, and other defense equipment.
Meanwhile, domestic media sources reported eleven demonstrators killed in a clash with the coup as the military troops tried to stop the protest by force.
According to the Assistance Association for Political Prisoners (AAPP) activist group, the latest crackdown killed more than 600 civilians. Moreover, AAPP said that more than 2,800 people are in detention for opposing the military policies.
On March 27, more than 140 civilians were killed, making it the coup’s bloodiest day.
As the nation suffers from the merciless military attacks, Suu Kyi, Myanmar’s leader for more than three decades now, is accused of winning the elections by rigging. She has been held captive in an undisclosed location.
Internationally, the junta’s actions have been strongly condemned. The US and European Union already imposed sanctions on the coup and also some of their family members.
1,800 people who have entered from Myanmar since late February, according to an Indian official.
