1. The National Unity Government condemns the military junta’s expulsion of Timorese diplomat from Myanmar, stating it is customary, unlawful, and inappropriate

On August 28, the National Unity Government issued a statement on the terrorist military junta’s expulsion of the Charge d’Affaires of the Embassy of Timor-Leste from Myanmar.
