Ambassadors Ms. Barbara Woodward and U Kyaw Moe Tun gave a briefing at the United Nations headquarters based in New York regarding on the truth about the case in which the Myanmar military junta is particularly focusing on targeting the PaziGyi village, KanBalu township, KantBalu district in Sagaing Division.
Ambassador U Kyaw Moe Tun, Myanmar's permanent representative to the United Nations, emphasized that the military is continuing to accelerate its war of terror against the Myanmar citizens, as well as clearly showing through the attacks it is constantly committing and that the terrorist army's brutal airstrikes on the people of PaziGyi village is a war crime and a crime against humanity.
he British Permanent Representative said that last Tuesday, the armed forces of the Myanmar junta committed an attack that caused serious death and destruction to the people. PaziGyi village in Sagaing Region was bombed by the army's fighter jets while the local community was gathering. Moreover, the military helicopters attacked the survivors and those trying to escape again. So far, there have been 168 deaths. The military did not deny the attack and admitted that they had committed the massacre. The United Kingdom strongly condemns such cowardly attacks on children and unarmed civilians. This act is a violation of international law and there is no excuse for this crime. The Security Council condemns and opposes the mentioned attack and believes that the military must fully implement the Resolution (2669) adopted by the Security Council. However, he is concerned that the Security Council has not yet been able to act anything upon it. On the part of the United Kingdom, it will continue to take responsibility for all the actions where the military oppressed the people of Myanmar. They have already imposed sanctions on 20 individuals and 29 organizations in order to block the military leaders and their access to arms and military equipment. They said that they will continue to stand with the Myanmar citizens and continue to cooperate to support their democratic demands.
At the briefing, it is stated that there was a total of (56) airstrikes committed by the military junta between January and March in 2023. Since the military dictatorship in Myanmar, there have been 66 massacres. The international community, including the United Nations Security Council, has repeatedly called on the Myanmar military junta to stop violence, but it is clearly shown through their continuous attacks that the military junta is continuing to accelerate its war of terror against the Myanmar citizens. Ambassador U Kyaw Moe Tun, Permanent Representative of Myanmar to the United Nations, emphasized that these actions of the military are a blatant violation of UN Security Council Resolution 2669 (2022), which calls for a permanent end to violence throughout Myanmar.
