Declaration on the situation in Myanmar

Declaration on the situation in Myanmar

The membership of United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) is closely following events in Myanmar and calls for the respect of rule of law and the results of the democratic elections and hope representatives of local authorities will be able to assume the legitimate mandate entrusted to them by the people of Myanmar. 

We stand with the people of Myanmar and call on human rights to be protected. We join the statements of the United Nations and of ASEAN in which deep concern on the military take-over of the country has been expressed and hope for a swift restoration of security and peace.
