LONDON - Following the increase in violence from the military against peaceful protesters over the weekend, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab has made the below statement.

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said:

“One month on and the military in Myanmar continues to escalate its use of violence to support its coup, including the killing of peaceful protesters over the weekend. The people of Myanmar want their voices heard and are showing huge bravery in response to this brutality.

And today, Aung San Suu Kyi, Myanmar’s elected leader, again faced politically motivated charges. The international community must do everything it can to bring pressure to bare to halt the violence, release those detained arbitrarily and restore the elected government.”
