Hind Al Soulia - Riyadh - Saudi Gazette report

BRUSSELS — The Council of European Union has extended sanctions for another against senior officials in Myanmar and others involved in the military coup on Feb. 1, 2021, the council said in a press release on Thursday.

The sanctions are in response to the military coup and the subsequent violence against peaceful protesters, as well as those responsible for the serious human rights violations committed against the Rohingya population and other ethnic minorities, the council said in the statement.

“The sanctions target high-ranking officials from the Myanmar Armed Forces (Tatmadaw) and the border guard police, as well as civilian members of the State Administrative Council and the Chairman of the Election Commission. The restrictive measures also cover two entities owned and controlled by the Myanmar Armed Forces (Tatmadaw),” the statement read.

The sanctions regime also includes an embargo on arms and equipment that can be used for internal repression, an export ban on dual-use goods for use by the military and border guard police, and export restrictions on equipment for monitoring communications that could be used for internal repression. It also prohibits the provision of military training to, and military cooperation with, the Myanmar Armed Forces (Tatmadaw). It does not adversely affect the vulnerable Burmese population, according to the statement.

The Council last adopted conclusions on Myanmar in February 2021 condemning in the strongest possible terms the military coup.

“The EU continues to stand with the Burmese people and will continue to provide humanitarian assistance. Since the beginning of 2021, 20.5 million euros ($24.8 million) have already been allocated,” the statement added.
