In a major embarrassment to the military government of Myanmar, its permanent representative to the UN on Friday denounced the military coup during an informal briefing by the special envoy of the Secretary General to the UN General Assembly. Permanent Representative of Myanmar Ambassador U Kyaw Moe also gave the three finger salute during his speech. The three finger salute has become the trademark symbol of the protestors in Myanmar since the military takeover of the government in the country.

Addressing the meeting, Ambassador U Kyaw Moe said that the landslide victory of the National League for Democracy (NLD) at the general elections manifests that the people of Myanmar are with State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi. Supporting the protestors in Myanmar, he said that he agreed with the view of the Secretary General that the military coup is not acceptable in the modern world. Urging strong support from the international community in the fight of Myanmar people against the military regime, Ambassador U Kyaw Moe called for the strongest action to immediately end the military coup and restore democracy.
