February 5, the United Nations Security Council called for the release of Myanmar’s military on Thursday local time to release the country’s senior state government, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, and expressed concern about the state of emergency in Myanmar, but did not condemn the military’s takeover of state power.
In the agreed statement, the Council stressed that “democratic institutions and processes must be maintained, violence must be avoided, and human rights, fundamental freedoms and the rule of law must be fully respected”.
The statement said: “Encourage the search for dialogue and reconciliation in accordance with the will and interests of the people of Myanmar.”
At the regular press conference of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on February 4, in response to the statement of the Secretary-General of the United Nations that “the international community will work together to ensure the failure of the ‘military coup’ in Myanmar earlier this week”, Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said that China is a friendly neighbor of Myanmar.
We hope that all parties in Myanmar will and interests of the people first, properly handle differences and maintain political and social stability through dialogue and legal framework.
At the same time, we also believe that the international community should create a good external environment for Myanmar to properly resolve its differences, and any action should contribute to Myanmar’s political and social stability, contribute to Myanmar’s peaceful reconciliation, avoid intensifying contradictions and further complicating the situation.
