UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres has called on Myanmar’s military leadership to immediately restore democratic government in the country.
According to the World News Agency, the head of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, has demanded from the Myanmar army that the restoration of the democratic government is very necessary to stop the endless nightmare in the country.
Antonio Guterres added that the military government of Myanmar should listen to its people, release political prisoners and transfer power to a democratic government, which is the only way for stability and peace in the country and the region.
The UN chief further said that a five-point peace plan has been agreed with Myanmar’s military government, but it has not yet been implemented, which is a matter of concern.
It should be noted that in February of last year, the army overthrew the democratic government in Myanmar and arrested many politicians including the ruling Aung San Suu Kyi. Protests erupted across the country.
The military government tried to crush the protests by force and during this time more than 2 thousand protesters were killed and more than 5 thousand were injured.
The military government also executed 5 people, including members of the assembly and pro-democracy activists, but the resistance against the military government is still ongoing, while the country’s separatist military groups have also risen up against the military government.
