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.

Treaty Banning Nuclear Weapons to Enter into Force in January

The Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons will enter into force on Jan. 22, 2021. Honduras became the 50th country to ratify the treaty on Oct. 24, triggering the treaty’s entry into force after a 90-day period. United Nations (U.N.) Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said that the treaty was the “culmination of a worldwide movement to draw attention to the catastrophic humanitarian consequences of any use of nuclear weapons. It represents a meaningful commitment towards the total elimination of nuclear weapons, which remains the highest disarmament priority of the United Nations.” The treaty bans the testing, production, manufacturing, and possession of nuclear weapons.

UN meeting that began with unity concludes with divisions

UNITED NATIONS — This year's U.N. General Assembly meeting began with calls for multilateralism and cooperation — a declaration that the urgency for countries to unite "has rarely been greater." It concluded with a parade of divisive grievances that echoed when the final gavel fell.

Leader after leader in days of speeches delivered virtually stressed the importance of working together to navigate the coronavirus outbreak and the challenges that lie beyond it. As Germany's foreign minister put it, COVID-19 "shows that international cooperation is neither an ideology nor an end in itself. On the contrary, it delivers results, far beyond the actual pandemic."

Bangladesh will also seek genuine efforts from the global community to help Rohingyas return to their place of origin in Myanmar's Rakhine State, they said.
