United Nations, March 3 : UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has received two conflicting letters concerning the position of Myanmar’s Permanent Representative to the world body.
“I can confirm that we’ve received two letters. They’re currently under review,” Xinhua news agency quoted Stephane Dujarric, spokesman for Guterres, as saying at a briefing on Tuesday.
“We did receive a letter yesterday (Monday) from Kyaw Moe Tun, the Permanent Representative of Myanmar, which was addressed to the President of the General Assembly with copy to the Secretary-General’s Office, informing that he remains Myanmar’s Permanent Representative to the UN,” Dujarric told the press briefing.
“We’ve also received a note verbale from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Myanmar this (Tuesday) morning, which was addressed to the Secretary-General’s Office, informing that the State Administration Council of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar has terminated the duties and responsibilities of Kyaw Moe Tun as Permanent Representative of Myanmar and that U Tin Maung Naing, Deputy Permanent Representative, has been assigned as the charge d’affaires ad interim of the Permanent Mission,” the spokesman added Kyaw Moe Tun, who spoke at a UN General Assembly meeting on February 26 against the Myanmar detention of the country’s political leaders, was fired by the military authorities the next day.
In an emotional speech, Kyaw Moe Tun said no-one should co-operate with the military until it handed back power to the democratically elected government.
