March 19 (Reuters) - World leaders from Washington to Singapore have condemned a military coup in Myanmar, urging generals to halt a deadly crackdown on demonstrators, release detainees including civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi and restore the elected government.

Some countries have followed up with targeted financial sanctions in hopes of putting the squeeze on the generals who staged the Feb. 1 coup and convince them to change course.

With the European Union set to approve sanctions on Myanmar next week, here is a snapshot of other actions around the globe.

Myanmar’s Generals Reshape Regional Political Dynamics

THE I DIPLOMAT

Min Aung Hlaing’s seizure of power in Myanmar has shaken up the region’s diplomatic balance.

The third coup d’etat in Myanmar since the country’s independence in 1948 has installed a leader who is already named for an alleged genocide and a long list of atrocities linked to the ethnic cleansing of the Muslim Rohingya four years ago.

Sen. Gen. Aung Min Hlaing is the type of leader ASEAN can do without. Hearings into the atrocities at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) are continuing and this is just one factor regional leaders are struggling with since his rise to power through the barrel of gun.

Promises that this junta will be “different” from its predecessors and that multiparty elections will be held in a year just don’t cut it. New Zealand has already suspended high-level contacts and imposed a travel ban on its military leaders.

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres is demanding the coup be reversed.

Regional dynamics have changed since Myanmar’s generals enacted political reforms in 2011, backed by then U.S. President Barack Obama, and the new junta is now threatening to re-write the region’s diplomatic playbook.
