New US sanctions on Myanmar putschists – the Arabs and the world – the world


Washington announced on Monday that it had imposed new sanctions on two members of the military council, who took power in Myanmar in a coup that toppled Aung San Suu Kyi’s civilian government in early February, promising tougher measures if the military used force again against the demonstrators.

“We will not hesitate to take new measures against those who commit acts of violence and suppress the will of the people. We will not budge from our support for the people of Myanmar,” US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said in a statement.

Three weeks after the Myanmar army toppled the government of Aung San Suu Kyi, hundreds of thousands took to the streets in several Burmese cities to denounce the military coup Monday, in defiance of warnings from the military who threatened to resort to force to eliminate “chaos.”

“We call on the army and police to stop all attacks on peaceful protesters, to immediately release all those unjustly detained, to end attacks and intimidation against journalists and activists, and to reestablish the democratically elected government,” Blinken added in his statement.

Ten days ago, US President Joe Biden’s administration imposed a first series of sanctions against a number of leaders of the ruling military council, including the leader of the coup leaders, General Min Aung Hling.
