The incoming US administration joined governments around the world in condemning Myanmar’s military coup on Monday, calling for the release of elected leaders, including Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi.
China’s response, however, was more muted.
The United Nations led condemnation of Myanmar’s military after it seized power and detained Suu Kyi along with other politicians. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said the developments were a “serious blow to democratic reforms” and urged all leaders to refrain from violence and respect human rights, a UN spokesman said.
