Foreign Secretary Liz Truss gave a statement on the one-year anniversary of the Myanmar elections, held on 8 November 2020.
Foreign Secretary Liz Truss said:
Elections in Myanmar 1 year ago were a clear demonstration of the Myanmar people’s long standing desire for democracy. The military’s allegations of electoral fraud are entirely unsubstantiated and we reiterate our condemnation of the military coup. The military must end the violence, release political prisoners and engage in dialogue to enable a return to democracy.
