In an interview with BNN News in February, Human Rights Minister U Aung Myo Min spoke about the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

“The NDAA provided a way to help the NUG, NUCC, and EROs. It has inspired the rest of the world’s governments, which are confused about what to do and waiting to see which country will make the first move, to realise that they, too, need to do something. A country’s initiative encourages other countries to follow suit. There is a need not only for individual countries to act but also for collective action, such as global action.”
