WASHINGTON - Nine out of the 10 members of Asean want a draft UN resolution to drop a call for an embargo on arms supplies to the Myanmar military in the wake of its Feb 1 coup d'etat and the ensuing brutal crackdown.

A key reason for this is Asean's need to keep open channels for dialogue with the military.

Myanmar’s Southeast Asian neighbors are seeking a watering-down of a U.N. General Assembly draft resolution which includes dropping a call for an arms embargo against the country, Reuters reported.

The nine other members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, or Asean, said in a May 19 letter that the draft “cannot command the widest possible support in its current form, especially from all countries directly affected in the region,” Reuters said on Friday.

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — More than 200 global organizations urged the UN Security Council on Wednesday to impose an arms embargo on Myanmar, saying the time for statements has passed and immediate action is needed to help protect peaceful protesters against military rule and other opponents of the junta.

A statement by the non-governmental organizations said the military “has demonstrated a callous disregard for human life” since their February 1 coup, killing at least 769 people including 51 children as young as six years old and detaining several thousand activists, journalists, civil servants, and politicians. Hundreds of others have disappeared, it said.
