Myanmar Crisis

Myanmar civilian envoy pleads with China and Russia to 'stop' junta

Exiled representative also says Japan must sanction military government

Dr. Sasa reminds Myanmar's diplomats that "they are not representing the military generals; they are representing the people of Myanmar."

TOKYO -- A representative of Myanmar's civilian government in exile on Friday called on other countries to halt arms sales and impose coordinated sanctions on the junta, warning of impending civil war and genocide.

"One phone call from Beijing, one phone call from Moscow can stop these military generals," said Dr. Sasa, an envoy of the Committee Representing Pyidaungsu Hluttaw. "That's what we are asking them to do before this bloodbath happens in the coming days."
