The ambassador Kyaw Moe Tun, Permanent Representative of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar, has demanded to United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to take necessary action to put an immediate end to sexual violence being committed to the women in Myanmar by the Myanmar military.
He demanded the United Nations Security Council at UNSC open debate on “Women and Peace and Security; sexual violence in conflict”, held on 13 July 2023.
He mentioned in the statement that “the junta is unwilling to address sexual violence being committed by its personnel. Instead they maintain a culture of impunity among the rank and file.”
To put an end to the impunity of the Myanmar coup council, the ambassador urged the members of the UNSC to start a negotiation process to adopt a timely and enforceable resolution on Myanmar.
Women Human Right defender groups stated that the fascist junta council troops targeted the women and the girls and committed sexual violence such as rape and gang rape during the conflicts.
The ambassador also said that he appreciates the Secretary-General and Special Representatives of the Secretary-General (SRSG) Patten for correctly listing Myanmar military including its border guard in this year’s report’s list of parties credibly suspected of committing or being responsible for patterns of rape or other forms of sexual violence in situation of armed conflict.
