No: 45, 1 February 2021, Press Release Regarding The Military Intervention In Myanmar

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 01.02.2021

We express our deep concern about and condemn strongly the military takeover of government by the Myanmar Armed Forces that took place today. Turkey is against any kind of coup d’etat and military intervention.

We expect the immediate release of all of the elected officials, political personalities and civilians who are reported to be detained.

We call upon the convening of the new parliament at the earliest time, which was formed through the free will of the Myanmar people and the prompt removal of all restrictions placed on the elected leaders and democratic institutions.

We hope that this grave development will not worsen the plight of Rohingya Muslims living in Myanmar.

Atatürk
