British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab has condemned the “bullying actions,” but the UK has accepted the change.

Myanmar’s military seized power in a coup on 1 February, sparking protests and escalating violence.

Kyaw Zwar Minn has criticized the military coup and called for Myanmar’s ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi to be released.

About 600 people – including dozens of children – have been killed so far as pro-democracy protesters demand a return to power of elected leader Ms Suu Kyi and her National League for Democracy (NLD) party.
