Activists started activities to get a seat at the United Nations for U Kyaw Moe Tun
Protest movements in the United States, Japan, and South Korea, demanded the continued appointment of Ambassador U Kyaw Moe Tun as Myanmar's representative to the United Nations.
Myanmar people from San Francisco, USA, Seoul, South Korea, Tokyo, and Japan gathered and protested in prominent places in the city. They held slogans that read, "Only Ambassador U Kyaw Moe Tun represents the voice of the people of Myanmar." The General Assembly will be held at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City in the third week of September, and the leaders of the member countries will attend.
At this conference, U Kyaw Moe Tun, the ambassador representing the National Unity Government NUG, was urged by anti-military forces to carry out public activities to be represented again next year. At the same time as leaders from all over the world are arriving at the UN headquarters, the Myanmar people in New York also said that they plan to hold demonstrations to demand more emphasis on Myanmar's issues.
Despite the military council's efforts to get representation at the United Nations, Ambassador U Kyaw Moe Tun has been denied representation for the past two consecutive years.
