Myanmar’s Democratic Vision Depends on Including Rohingya, Other Ethnic Minorities “We will never be free until all of us are free.”

“We will never be free until all of us are free.”

Since the February 1 coup in Myanmar, the military has unfurled a brutal nationwide crackdown targeting protesters and civilians who oppose their unlawful rule. Indeed, last week’s stinging rebuke of the military coup by the United Nations General Assembly — only the fourth such resolution since the end of the Cold War — offers a stark reminder of what’s at stake.

The United Nations General Assembly has called for an arms embargo on Myanmar in response to the February coup by the military junta. In a rare act of defiance, Myanmar's UN ambassador also condemned the coup. TRT World's Frank Ucciardo sat down with Kyaw Moe Tun to talk about Myanmar's future and whether his county will ever return to democracy.

NEW YORK - The United Nations General Assembly on Friday called for a stop to the flow of arms to Myanmar and urged the military to respect November election results and release political detainees, including leader Aung San Suu Kyi.

The General Assembly adopted a resolution with the support of 119 countries several months after the military overthrew Aung San Suu Kyi's elected government in a Feb. 1 coup. Belarus requested the text be put to a vote and was the only country to oppose it, while 36 abstained, including China and Russia.

The UN General Assembly on Friday took a rare step of calling on member states to “prevent the flow of arms” into Myanmar, which is a part of a non-binding resolution condemning the military coup in the violence-wracked country.

The resolution -- which did not go so far as to call for a global arms embargo -- also demands that the military “immediately stop all violence against peaceful demonstrators,” reports Reuters.

It was approved by 119 countries, with 36 abstaining including China, Myanmar’s main ally. Only one country, Belarus, voted against it. Bangladesh also abstained from voting.

UNGA Motion on Myanmar: Dhaka keeps off vote as it skirts reality

Bangladesh has abstained from voting a UN General Assembly (UNGA) resolution that failed to adequately reflect on the Rohingya crisis and their repatriation from Bangladesh.

It also expressed deep disappointment at the resolution on the "Situation in Myanmar" that was adopted by the UNGA on Friday with 119 votes in favour, one against and 36 abstentions, said Bangladesh's Permanent Mission to the UN in New York in a statement yesterday.

The resolution calls on the country’s military to end the state of emergency and to reopen the ‘democratically elected parliament’, among other things.

On June 18, the United Nations General Assembly overwhelmingly passed a resolution on the “situation in Myanmar” with a vote of 119-1. Although not legally binding on member states, the document carries significant political heft.

U.N. General Assembly Demands Myanmar Junta End Coup and Stop the Killings

A resolution adopted Friday by the General Assembly is the most widespread condemnation yet of the Feb. 1 coup, a sharp diplomatic slap that contradicted the junta’s claim it has not been isolated.

The United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution on Friday rebuking the Myanmar military and demanding an end to its five-month-old coup.

“A system built on brutality and bloodshed will not survive. It’s not too late for the military to reverse the negative trajectory on the ground, exercise restraint, and respect the will of its own people. We must raise our voices for those who have been silenced, detained, injured or killed. We must be ardent advocates for the protection of all fundamental human rights, including the rights to freedom of expression, access to information and of peaceful assembly, which have been repeatedly infringed upon by the military-led authorities.” “Time is of the essence. The opportunity to reverse the military takeover is narrowing and regional threat increasing. Attempts to discredit democratically elected leaders and eliminate a party which has won sweeping majority in two consecutive general elections, silencing of free-made media and arrests of journalists, national and foreign, as well as the blocking of access to information fundamentally point a departure from democratic space. Any sustainable peace must be reflective of the will of the people. Any transition out of this crisis will present an opportunity to reshape Myanmar society free from ethnic divisions and a more inclusive constitutional and legal framework that places the military under civilian control.

UN: New resolution against violence in Myanmar must prompt global arms embargo

AMNESTY
INTERNATIONAL
18 June 2021,

All countries must stop selling arms to Myanmar following the adoption of a resolution by the UN General Assembly condemning the use of lethal force and violence in the country, Amnesty International said today.

The resolution, passed by an overwhelming vote of 119 to 1 with 36 abstentions, calls on member states to prevent the flow of arms into the country. It strongly condemns the worsening crackdown on peaceful protesters and civil society, calling for the immediate and unconditional release of arbitrary detainees and an end to restrictions on freedom of expression.

NEW YORK (Reuters) – The United Nations General Assembly is set on Friday to call for a stop to the flow of arms to Myanmar and urge the military to respect November election results and release political detainees, including leader Aung San Suu Kyi, diplomats said.

Western states have been pushing the 193-member body to consider a draft resolution, but it was postponed at the last minute in a bid to win more support, including from nine Southeast Asian nations.

Myanmar: ASEAN’s Empty Diplomacy Is Costing Lives

The regional bloc must support the growing calls for a global arms embargo on Myanmar. Words alone have failed to persuade the Myanmar military to stop killing and jailing its civilian opponents.

Both the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) have called on the Myanmar military to cease its use of violence. The military defies these calls, and the killing spree and arbitrary detentions continue.

Indonesia does not reject the idea of the R2P itself, claiming that the resolution has already had a standing annual agenda item

JAKARTA, INDONESIA — Indonesia’s controversial decision to vote against the Responsibility to Protect (R2P) resolution at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) on 18 May has become a contentious topic of late.

Indonesia was one of the 15 nations that voted ‘No’ on the resolution aimed at preventing war crimes, genocide, and other types of humanitarian crimes.

The resolution gained support from 115 countries, including several other ASEAN members such as the Philippines, Malaysia, and Thailand. As many as 28 countries chose to abstain.

Rohingya Repatriation: It looks uncertain

Hasina tells UNGA president

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina yesterday expressed concern about the repatriation of Rohingyas following the recent development in Myanmar as it has made the process uncertain.

"The situation has become uncertain due to the recent developments in Myanmar," Hasina said when visiting United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) President Volkan Bozkir met her at the Gono Bhaban.

UN General Assembly Action Needed on Myanmar

The United Nations Security Council, entrusted by the UN Charter to be the world’s guardian of international peace and security, has done little to help the people of Myanmar besides issuing statements asking the junta to end the violence and release prisoners. But the UN General Assembly can help motivate the council take action to stem the rampant abuses.

In the absence of robust Security Council action, the 193-nation General Assembly should adopt a resolution condemning the junta’s rights violations and calling on all UN members to halt arms transfers to Myanmar. While not legally binding on states, such a resolution would carry significant political weight. As the UN’s most representative body, it would send a powerful signal to the junta and press members of the Security Council to adopt a legally binding resolution – as recently urged by a group of 205 nongovernmental organizations, including Human Rights Watch.

As Burma Ambassador in NY Fired NYT Errs and Says Geneva Amid Silent Guterres Sleaze

SDNY / UN GATE, Feb 27 – After the Burma coup regime fired its New York-based UN ambassador U Kyaw Moe Tun for his speech in New York in the usually scripted UN General Assembly, the New York Times reported that the speech had been in Geneva.

Seven hours later, that remained uncorrected. And UN Sec-Gen Antonio Guterres, a darling of the NYT, was typically silent, wanting a second five-year term. All of this must be, and is being, opposed.
