Situation on ground in Myanmar ‘troubling’, says White House

Saturday, 06 March 2021 | PTI | Washington

The White House has said that the situation on the ground in Myanmar is “troubling” and the Biden administration has been working closely with its partners in the region.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters at her daily news conference on Thursday that the Biden administration has taken sanction steps to send a clear message that the coup in Myanmar is unacceptable.

“The situation on the ground in Burma is troubling,” she said.

The Biden administration has been working closely with its partners in the region, Psaki said.

At a separate news conference, State Department spokesperson Ned Price said that the US is deeply saddened by reports that security forces in Myanmar killed as many as 24 people on March 3.

“We strongly condemn the use of violence by Burmese (Myanmarese) security forces against the Burmese people, including peaceful protesters, journalists and civil society. We continue to urge the Burmese military to exercise maximum restraint,” he said.
