The leader of Myanmar's military coup, Senior General Min Aung Hlaing, has admitted that he didn't expect to see such massive opposition against his rule.
He said that his regime couldn't fully control the country adding that they had underestimated the amount of public resistance that would occur.
The acknowledgment came during an interview with Hong Kong-based broadcaster, Phoenix Television, on May 20th.
After the coup, Myanmar citizens took to the streets to protest the takeover.
The military chief led the coup on February 1st, claiming that the National League for Democracy government led by Aung San Suu Kyi had committed voter fraud during last year's general election.
