The very one who is organizing against the military who overthrew the civilian government of Aung San Suu Kyi. And the ambassador remained in New York to mobilize the international community for the cause of the Burmese people. </p><div> <p><em>With our correspondent in New York, </em><strong> Carrie Nooten</strong>
Ambassador Kyaw Moe Tun’s first mission from New York is to continue to ensure that no country recognizes the power of the military junta that has overthrown the government civilian on February 1. And so far, even China, Burma’s traditional ally, has not taken the plunge.
At the same time, to weaken the generals and their means deployed during the attacks against the demonstrators peaceful, the CRPH aims to drain funds, government revenues that the military will use to finance themselves and it calls on banks and foreign companies. Kyaw Moe Tun is also pleased that EDF has suspended its dam project in Burma.
« Any circulation of money reaching the military must be stopped immediately. Total is still active, the CRPH will contact the company, as it will do for all oil and gas companies. They need to review their contracts, but can certainly count on the force majeure clause. »
For Ambassador Kyaw Moe Tun, these actions can be easily organized by several countries, and prove to be extremely effective, as crippling as sanctions.
