U Kyaw Moe Tun, Myanmar’s permanent representative to the United Nations, highlighted about the atrocities committed by Myanmar’s military regime in Thantlang, in his statement for the Plenary meeting of the 76th UN General Assembly.
“All people I repeat all people in Myanmar are suffering every day, every hour, every minute from atrocities, crimes against humanity committed by the military and some even brutally killed,” he said.
“In a township called Htantlang in Chin State, west of Myanmar, more than 100 houses including 2 churches were burnt down by the military troops today alone. Your serious attention to the basic rights of all people and your action to prevent all people from such atrocities is seriously needed,” he added.
On 29 October, the military junta’s forces burned down a total of 165 houses, including two churches in Thantlang, Chin State.
“Decisive timely action from the UN, in particular, the UN Security Council is well (well) overdue. What are you waiting for? Please save lives of the people of Myanma,” continued as he read the statement.
U Kyaw Moe Tun was appointed as Myanmar Permanent Representative to the United Nations in 2020 by the ousted government led by Daw Aung San Su Kyi.
