Condemning the UNSC resolution, updated

myanmaalin.jpg

The New Light of Myanmar has published 17 articles 25 articles 36 articles of Burmese organizations condemning the UN Security Council resolution on Burma since the resolution was vetoed last week. The New Light is published by the Ministry of Information, headed by Brigadier-General Kyaw Hsan. The following is a list of Burmese groups and organizations that have condemned the UNSC resolution. All of the denouncements have uncannily similar language, interestingly enough. Although they are entitled to their opinions, most have little relevance to international politics. I honestly think the government is all too keen to show how many support its viewpoints. Quantity over quality, right?

U Myint Thein, spokesman of the National League for Democracy, said

“What we’ve always been asking for, and the UN’s Security Council’s looking for, is national reconciliation and the dialogue. So their [condemning the UN] can be interpreted as a refusal of this,”
“NLD thanks military for coverage”, Democratic Voice of Burma

He also thanked the military government for publicly denouncing the resolution, which was intended to deal with human rights abuses and speed up reforms towards democracy in Burma.
