The Irrawaddy stated that China and Russia continue to defend Myanmar’s military, maintaining that the armed forces’ takeover from the democratically elected government in Myanmar’s internal affair.
Meanwhile, at a special session of the UN Human Rights Council on Friday, several United Nations representatives deplored the military’s conduct.
Myanmar’s giant neighbor China, however, distanced itself from the human rights concerns of the world, with China’s representative to the UNHRC saying, “What happens in Myanmar is essentially Myanmar’s internal affairs.”
