Myanmar coup: Singapore PM Lee says it’s ‘tragic’


0

Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong condemned the use of violence by the Myanmar security forces against unarmed civilians who protested last month’s coup.

Singapore is the largest foreign investor in Myanmar and described the use of lethal force against the demonstrators as “unjustified” in the past.

Speaking to the BBC’s Karishma Vaswani, Mr. Lee urged the military to release Aung San Suu Kyi, the country’s democratically elected leader.

His comments came as security forces once again used tear gas and sound bombs against people in Yangon, Myanmar’s largest city.
