Myanmar Embassy Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office statement

Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office spokesperson said:

We condemn the way the Myanmar military in London barred their Ambassador from entering the Embassy yesterday evening.

We pay tribute to the courage of Kyaw Zwar Minn in standing up for the people of Myanmar. Given the bullying behaviour towards Mr Minn, we are seeking to ensure he can live safely in the United Kingdom, while he decides his long-term future.

We continue to call for an end to the coup in Myanmar and a swift restoration of democracy.
