According to the UN, on Wednesday, during the crackdown on Myanmar’s protests, security forces killed 38 people.
The United States strongly condemns the use of violence against peaceful demonstrators by Myanmar security forces and mourns the deaths of protesters. This was announced on Thursday by the official representative of the State Department, Ned Price. He added that Washington would take measures connected with the increase in violence in Myanmar after the military coup that took place in the country, according to the Reuters news agency.
This week, police broke up demonstrations in Myanmar with tear gas and then opened fire in several cities after protesters returned to the streets. The United Nations said 38 people were killed during demonstrations in Myanmar on Wednesday.
Responding to a question about Iran, Ned Price said that Washington approves of the decision of the European allies to abandon the condemnation of Tehran at the meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna. The State Department hopes that Iran will move to diplomatic communication, according to Agence France-Presse.
“We are waiting… That Iran is ready to engage in work that will lead to convincing and real progress,” the State Department official added, referring to the commitments that Tehran made under the 2015 JCPOA nuclear agreement.
