Ambassador U Kyaw Moe Tun, the incumbent Representative of Myanmar to the United Nations, will remain in the post for another General Assembly session.

The UN Credentials Committee, most recently appointed on September 5, will have to decide whether to accept credentials of Ambassador U Kyaw Moe Tun for another General Assembly session. However, spokesperson for the president of the U.N. General Assembly, Monica Grayley, told RFA that the committee has not sat since it was appointed, which means that Ambassador U Kyaw Moe Tun will remain in the post. “The credentials that were before, are the credentials that will remain. Whoever sat last year will sit this year,” she told RFA.

Foreign Minister Daw Zin Mar Aung spoke in an interview with RFA, stating that neither the National Unity Government nor the military junta are allowed to represent Myanmar at the UN. However, she emphasised that the voice of the people is still allowed to be represented, allowing Ambassador U Kyaw Moe Tun to continue representing Myanmar.

The Myanmar Accountability Project (MAP), a UK-based rights group, welcomed the decision by the UN Credentials Committee to keep Kyaw Moe Tun in his post.
