The UN Human Rights Council has approved the resolution on the Myanmar issue.

The UN Human Rights Council has approved the resolution on the Myanmar issue.

The military must immediately stop all airstrikes targeting civilians. We also demand the immediate release of all those who have been unjustly arrested, including Counselor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and President U Win Myint.

A draft resolution on the Myanmar issue was unanimously approved by the United Nations Human Rights Council on April 4th. In that decision, the Myanmar military's human rights violations, and the terrorist actions have been pointed out and condemned after the military coup.

United Nations member countries should not illegally export weapons to the Myanmar military so that they do not continue to violate human rights. He also urged not to sell them.

It can also lead to taking action against officials in international court.

Michèle Taylor, the United Nations Human Rights Council's ambassador to the United States, said, "We see and hear what the people in Myanmar are suffering. I want to say that we have not forgotten about the Myanmar citizens."

"I request that no UN member country sell weapons to Myanmar. Let me be clear here. The Myanmar military is committing human rights violations against the people of Myanmar with such weapons that can be purchased."

"As the people of Myanmar have consistently demanded, the international community needs to take strong action and respond. If we have to do anything, we need to block the sale of weapons so that they don't get into the hands of the Myanmar military. We need to impose economic sanctions."

She also said that according to the results of the 2020 democratic election, the will of the people needs to be respected and the Myanmar military council should be already surrendered under those decisions.

“We should stop the Human rights violations in Burma and help those responsible for war crimes to take action in international and regional courts, including ICJ and ICC. To share information and evidence with all UN bodies, including the UN investigation team IIMM, which is looking for evidence to take such action. I urge you to help.” she said.

The United Nations Human Rights Council's ambassador to the UK, Simon Manley, said, "The Burmese military has absolutely no regard for international rule of law, human rights, and democratic standards. Just last week, they dissolved 40 political parties, including the National League for Democracy (NLD). This is an insult to the rights of the Burmese citizens. There is only one way to take action to end the Myanmar military's impunity."

China's ambassador said that China will not participate in the UN Human Rights Council's discussion on Myanmar's resolution held in Geneva, Switzerland yesterday.

To speed up all the political reforms, All parties concerned hope to resolve it through discussion and negotiation. Sanctions will only have the opposite effect. It is said that China will not take part in this decision because it believes that the current resolution will worsen the situation in Myanmar.

In this decision, the issue of the Rohingyas is also mentioned. He also said that he welcomed the policy attitude of the National Unity Government (NUG) for the citizenship rights of the Rohingya in Rakhine State.
