Mr. Ned Price, a spokesperson for the United States Department of State, remarked that it is urgent to end the Myanmar junta, who have committed violent crimes and crimes against humanity in Myanmar with impunity, in his announcement on December 10th, International Human Rights Day.
On the Facebook page of the U.S Embassy Rangoon, the following statement was posted with a video.
He said, “We are outraged by credible and sickening reports that the Burmese military bound 11 villagers – including children – in northwest Burma and burned them alive.”
Mr. Ned Price continued “Appallingly, this is not the first time we have seen reports of the Burmese military using such tactics to oppress the people of Burma.”
He said, “The military’s widespread use of horrific and brutal violence underscores the urgency of ending the Burmese military’s culture of impunity by holding military actors accountable and restoring Burma’s path to inclusive democracy.“
“We stand with the people of Burma in their aspirations for freedom, justice, and democracy and call on the military regime to end the use of violence, release those unjustly detained, address human rights abuses, and respect the will of the people.”
