Special Session of Human Rights Council on Myanmar held
AT the request of the United
Kingdom of Great Britain and
Northern Ireland, a special
session of the Human Rights
Council on Myanmar was held
on 12 February 2021 in Geneva,
Switzerland. During the session,
the United Kingdom and the
European Union jointly tabled
a resolution on the current sit-
uation in Myanmar.
Before the submis-
sion

of the draft resolution, the
Permanent Representative of
Myanmar, Ambassador U My-
int Thu, made a statement and
explained the present situation
in Myanmar, including the as-
sumption of the State respon-
sibility by the Tatmadaw on 1
February 2021 in accordance
with State Constitution (2008), the policies of the State Admin-
istration Council and plans to be
implemented during the period
of State of Emergency. He also
said that Myanmar will continue
to adhere to the Independent,
Active and Non-aligned For

eign Policy; uphold the princi –
ples of peaceful co-existence
and engage with the United
Nations towards lasting peace
and stability and sustained
development to the benefit of
the people. Furthermore, he
stated that Myanmar has nev-
er accepted a country specific
resolution which is politicized
and unbalanced. He added that
such attempt can further com-
plicate the prevailing situation
in the country and hamper the
prevalence of maintaining law
and order, peace and stability
and the socio-economic devel-
opment of the people. In this manner, Myanmar dissociated
itself from the resolution. Chi-
na, Russia, Venezuela, Bolivia and Philippines also dissociated
themselves from the resolution.

Request to Public
1. Democracy practices have granted the public freedom of speech, practices and living. Such freedoms should not harm others. Diverse views of others should
be understood, but should not be disturbed or harassed. However, with the reason for human rights, some persons are now under pressure, harassed and
threatened in breaching the laws. Undisciplined acts could lead to tarnishing the image of democracy.
2.
For preventing destr

uctive actions against the stability of the State, the safety of the public and the rule of law, it is also required to take proper actions in line
with the law.
3.
All the people who favour justice, freedom, equality and safety are requested

to oppose breaching the laws and prevent such actions for the benefit of country
and people.
The special session of the Human Rights Council on Myanmar was held in Geneva on 12 February 2021.
