Aotearoa New Zealand is deeply concerned about the struggle for military power in Myanmar.
New Zealand is a longtime supporter of Myanmar’s democratic transition.
We call for the immediate release of all detained political actors, including Myanmar State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi and President U Win Myint, and for an immediate return to civilian government.
Elections have taken place and the people’s democratic will must be respected. We affirm our support for Myanmar’s democratic institutions and rule of law.
New Zealand officials are closely monitoring the situation in Myanmar. Consular advice to New Zealanders in Myanmar to avoid unnecessary travel for now and to monitor media reporting for the latest information.
