Reiterating his concern over the situation in Myanmar, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres has been reaching out to regional leaders in Asia to call for collective and bilateral action to create conditions for the recent military coup in the country to be reversed, the UN chief’s spokesperson has said. 

Myanmar’s military last week toppled the government and seized power for one year, detaining top political figures, including de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi. 

The military accused Suu Kyi’s government of not investigating allegations of voter fraud in recent elections. 

The 15-nation Security Council, the most powerful organ of the world organization, had issued a press statement on Thursday on the situation in Myanmar, three days after the military seized power in the Southeast Asian nation.
