US calls on nations to suspend weapons supply to Myanmar until military accountability is ensured

The United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley called for nations to suspend weapons supplies to Myanmar until there were adequate accountability measures in place to deal with the ongoing military violence against the Rohingya Muslims.

Speaking at the United Nations on Thursday, Ms Haley said,

“We cannot be afraid to call the actions of the Burmese authorities what they appear to be – a brutal, sustained campaign to cleanse the country of an ethnic minority.”

The US Ambassador further called on the UN Security Council to “shame senior Burmese leaders” for their involvement in the ongoing abuses.
