MOSCOW (Sputnik) – UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab on Thursday denounced the Myanmar military for their alleged involvement in the blockage of the country’s embassy in London.
“We condemn the bullying actions of the Myanmar military regime in London yesterday, and I pay tribute to Kyaw Zwar Minn [Myanmar ambassador to London] for his courage. The UK continues to call for an end to the coup and the appalling violence, and a swift restoration of democracy”, Raab tweeted.
Raab’s comment comes in response to what Kyaw Zwar Minn described in an interview with The Telegraph as the seizure of the Myanmar Embassy in London by allies of the country’s military junta.
According to media reports, the ambassador on Wednesday attempted to get inside the building of the embassy but failed to do so. Besides this, some of his personnel remained in the embassy, unable to come out.
