UN calls for arms embargo on Myanmar, condemns military junta Updated: 2021-06-19 09:31:44 KST

The UN General Assembly on Friday condemned Myanmar's military coup, and called for an arms embargo on the country.
The demands were part of a resolution backed by 1-hundred-19 countries, with the only opposition coming from Belarus.
36 countries, including China and India, abstained.
The vote comes as the UN Security Council held informal talks on Myanmar, four months since the military overthrew the elected civilian government.
The resolution called on the junta to restore the country's democratic government while calling on other countries to prevent the flow of arms into Myanmar.
While the resolution is not legally binding, it reflects strong global condemnation of the military crackdown.
