The new deputy head of the American Embassy said that he will continue to stand by the Burmese people.
National Unity Government (NUG); ethnic organizations, Susan N. Stevenson, the new deputy head of the US Embassy in Myanmar, said that the American government encourages and supports civil society organizations.
Yesterday, July 17th, she said it during her introduction to the people of Burma through a television video.
In addition, the US government is working with the United Nations and international partners, including ASEAN, for Myanmar's affairs, she said.
Susan N. Stevenson also said that she is proud to represent the United States and support the Burmese people at such an important time in Myanmar's history.
The U.S. government has imposed sanctions on more than a hundred individuals and organizations, including the two largest financial institutions owned by the state of Myanmar, which has put pressure on the authoritarian organization and made it more difficult for it to connect to financial markets.
Susan N. Stevenson, who will return home this month, will continue to serve as the deputy head of the US Embassy, Deb Lynn.
