1. Acting President Duwa Lashi La says to be cautious of the terrorist military’s tactics to divide between ethnic groups

At the Cabinet Meeting held online on March 28, Acting President Duwa Lashi La said that the terrorist military council’s meetings with some ethnic organisations and efforts to create a fake peace conference were obviously part of their old tactics to divide the ethnic groups.

The Myanmar military regime’s decision to dissolve 40 political parties, including Aung San Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy party, is a further assault on the rights and freedoms of the Myanmar people.

There can be no solution to the crisis created by the military regime without meaningful, inclusive dialogue, which respects the people’s democratic wishes.

We condemn the military regime’s politically motivated actions and their use of increasingly brutal tactics to sow fear and repress opposition. The UK will continue working with partners to pressure the regime to end all violence and create space for meaningful and inclusive dialogue. We reiterate our support for the people of Myanmar and their aspirations for an inclusive and democratic future.
