The South Korean government condemned the armed intervention of security forces against anti-coup protesters in Myanmar.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in stated in his social media post that the violence against peaceful protesters in Myanmar should stop immediately, “He condemns the military and police suppressing the protests by using violence. “We are calling for the quitting,” he said.

Events in Myanmar

The Myanmar army seized the administration on February 1, after political groups close to it made allegations of fraud in the 8 November 2020 elections and the rise of political tension in the country.

The army detained many officials and ruling party leaders, including Aung San Suu Çii, the Foreign Minister and de facto leader of the country, and declared a state of emergency for a year.
