According to Bloomberg on February 1, after the “coup” in Myanmar, the Thai military said it was monitoring the Myanmar border to prevent a large influx of immigrants.
The Thai military said it would strengthen border surveillance and patrols.
The Thai military said that troops were stationed at the border to prevent and control the novel coronavirus epidemic, and any illegal immigrants would be detained, but it now does not believe that there will be an immigration wave or that the military’s takeover of Myanmar’s regime will affect Myanmar’s minorities.
According to Xinhua News Agency, spokesman Miao Nu, spokesman of Myanmar’s ruling party, the National League for Democracy (NLD), said on the 1st that Myanmar’s President Wen Min, State Senior Government Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and some senior NLD officials were detained by the military in the early morning of the same day.
Myanmar military television said that a one-year state of emergency was introduced and state power was transferred to the commander-in-chief of the National Defense Force.
