Myanmar Ambassador to the United Kingdom Kyaw Min visitors was prevented from entering the embassy building in central London.
The British news agency “BA Media” reported that the ambassador was prevented from entering the embassy building on Wednesday evening.
The ambassador said that the Myanmar army is running a “coup”, adding to the British newspaper Telegraph, “They are refusing me to enter the embassy building.” They say they received instructions from the capital, so they refuse to enter me. ”
“This is a coup,” he added. This is the UK, we are not in Myanmar. They can’t do that. The British government will not allow it, and you will see. ”
The ambassador accused a military figure close to the ruling coup group in Rangoon of “occupying” his country’s embassy and preventing him from entering it.
Asked about the people in the building while he was standing outside, Ambassador Kyaw Min Zuwar said Wednesday that “the military attaché, they are occupying my embassy.”
A spokesman for the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office said yesterday, “We are seeking more information after an incident occurred at the Myanmar embassy in London.”
The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) reported last month that the Myanmar authorities had summoned visitors to Maine after he spoke against Myanmar’s military coup on February 1 and demanded the release of the detained country’s de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi.
The British Prime Minister Boris Johnson condemned the overthrow of the elected government in Myanmar.
On March 8, British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab praised the courage and heroism of the Myanmar ambassador in defending the truth.
“We share his call for the immediate release of Aung San Suu Kyi and President Win Myint and for a return to democratic rule,” he said.
