The Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a press statement on Thursday. It stated that the ministry learnt that there was a meeting namely Annual Ministerial Meeting on the Responsibility to Protect on 20th September 2021 and it was organized by the Global Center for Responsibility to Protect (GCR2P) on the sidelines of the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly. The Ministry further observed that the said meeting was participated by Kyaw Moe Tun, a dismissed civil servant who has been facing the charge of high treason. The Ministry further reiterates that his participation does not represent Myanmar as he delivered the statement on behalf of the so-called NUG which was declared as a terrorist group for committing terrorist activities in Myanmar. It is evident that he himself is a member of the said-terrorist organization. Moreover, his statement contained fabricated and unfounded allegations from anti-government quarter and it also included unacceptable elements such as infringement on State’s sovereignty and inviting the foreign interferences. Myanmar strongly rejects and objects the conducts of countries and organizations which allowed his participation as well as reminds them that such action would lead further incitement of violence and instability in Myanmar. Therefore, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs reiterates its call to the international community to refrain from any form of engagement with and encouragement to such unlawful and terrorist organizations and their representatives.
