Japan’s Parliament condemns violent seizure of power in Myanmar

Tokyo, Jun 8 (Prensa Latina) Japan's House of Representatives on Tuesday condemned the violent seizure of power in Myanmar by the army, and called for national consensus.

A resolution, adopted in a plenary session of the Lower House, described the coup d’état as an act to trample on the efforts and expectations of democratization.

The legislative body also demanded the immediate end to violence against civilians and joined the demands from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN)to release political prisoners and seek national consensus in Myanmar.

On February 1, Myanmar’s Army informed that it had seized power after electoral authorities rejected its accusations of fraud in the November 2020 elections, which were won by the party of the now detained Aung San Suu Kyi.
