Myanmar military rejected request to speak with Suu Kyi: US State Department

Myanmar military rejected request to speak with Suu Kyi: US State Department

Washington, Feb 9 (UNI) The Myanmar military has rejected the US' request to speak with State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi, US State Department said on Monday.
"Shortly after the events of February 1, we made an effort to reach out to Aung San Suu Kyi, we did that both informally and we did that formally as well, those requests of course were denied," Sputnik quoted US State Department Spokesperson Ned Price as saying.
Last week, Myanmar’s military overthrew the government and declared a year-long state of emergency after accusing Aung San Suu Kyi's party of election fraud held last year, in which Nobel Laureate Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy (NLD) party secured the majority.
US officials have said the Biden administration is crafting measures to impose on Myanmar's military if it does not relinquish power.
During a press briefing, Price said: The United States is concerned about the Myanmar military's decision to restrict peaceful protests in Myanmar.
"We stand with the people of Burma [Myanmar], support their right to assemble peacefully, including to protest peacefully in support of the democratically-elected government... we're of course very concerned about the military's recent announcement restricting public gatherings," Price said.
