The World is Watching: Joint statement of Ambassadors to Myanmar

 

We call on security forces to refrain from violence against demonstrators and civilians, who are protesting the overthrow of their legitimate government.

We unequivocally condemn the detention and ongoing arrests of political leaders, civil society activists, and civil servants, as well as the harassment of journalists. We also denounce the military's interruption of communications, as well as the restriction of the Myanmar people's fundamental rights and basic legal protections. We support the people of Myanmar in their quest for democracy, freedom, peace, and prosperity.  The world is watching. 

Signed by the Ambassadors to Myanmar from Canada; the Delegation of the EU and European Union Member States with presence in Myanmar: Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, and Sweden; Norway; Switzerland; the United Kingdom; and the United States.
