In the United Nations General Assembly, India gave its statement regarding Myanmar and said that the first priority of all the delegates there should be to restore democratic values. At this time, India has appealed to the international community for the support of the people of the Southeast Asian country.
India's Permanent Representative to the United Nations General Assembly, TS Tirumurthy said that India has kept a close watch on the recent incidents in Myanmar. Let me tell you that in Myanmar, the army overthrew the election on November 8 due to fraud and imposed military rule there.
Not only this, many political women including Aung San Suu Kyi have been taken into custody. After this, the advocates of democracy took to the streets and demanded the release of their leader Aung San Suu Kyi. At least three protesters and a policeman have died in the protests in Myanmar.
India said that India, as a neighbor and a friendly country, would always keep an eye on the activities taking place in Myanmar. TS Thirumurthy said that we want democratic process and law and order to be maintained and those who are detained should be released so that peace can be restored.
TS Tirumurthy said that India appreciates Bangladesh's decision to give shelter to more than one million displaced people. India said that the international community should understand what problems Bangladesh is facing with displaced people.
Apart from this, we should also appreciate the steps being taken by Bangladesh for the welfare of the displaced people. At the same time, TES Tirumurthy said that the international community should also help the Bangladesh government financially. This includes providing education and providing appropriate health facilities.
