Yangon The United Nations says 3 million people in Myanmar are in need of life-saving assistance. UN officials say the humanitarian crisis in Myanmar has escalated since the imposition of military rule.
Martin Griffiths, the UN’s chief humanitarian chief, said the need for humanitarian aid had grown as the military leadership resorted to coercive rule, escalating conflict and escalating the economic crisis.
In Myanmar, the military seized power on February 1, taking control of the then-government and political party leaders, including Aung San Suu Kyi. He said that the number of people in need of humanitarian assistance was increasing day by day due to lack of efforts for peaceful exit and endless conflict.
Martin, the head of humanitarian aid, has called on all to provide immediate assistance to the people of Myanmar. Dissatisfied with the outcome of the election, the army seized power and declared a state of emergency.
Last Monday marks one year since Myanmar held elections. The election was described by international observers, the National Election Commission and election officials as fair, free and fair.
However, Myanmar’s military has filed a complaint with the Election Commission alleging election fraud. But the commission said the army’s claim was baseless. UN spokesman Stephen Dujarric also said that the military’s allegations were “false” because both local and foreign observers had said the election was free and fair.
International relations with Myanmar have also deteriorated since the army seized power expressing dissatisfaction with the election results. Some international donors have stopped their assistance. That is why the United Nations says more humanitarian crises have arisen.
