The Communist Party of China (CCTV) has avoided the word “coup” in its coverage of the coup in Myanmar, instead using the phrase “massive cabinet reshuffle”.
Myanmar’s military has launched a coup, detaining senior officials including substantive leader Ung San Suu Kyi, and shutting down Internet communication in the country in an attempt to cut off communication between the country and the outside world.
After the outbreak of the coup, the UN Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for Myanmar Christine Schraner Burgener issued a statement condemning it, but the UN Security Council never made a clear statement until Thursday, when it called on the Burmese military to release Ung San Suu Kyi and other senior officials arrested, but still did not condemn the military for staging the coup.
The UN Security Council has chosen to avoid the issue of the coup, and the Chinese Communist Party and Russia, as dictatorial regimes, are believed to be in the middle of the UN Security Council obstruction, foreign media reported, the Security Council originally prepared a draft statement, the key content mentioned to condemn the coup, sick demanded that the Burmese military restore the democratic civilian government, immediately release those illegally detained, while lifting the one-year state of emergency, but the statement must be supported by the 15 members, but the Chinese and Russian delegations asked for more Time to review the statement. The Russian delegation asked for more time to review and discuss the statement.
In addition, since Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi visited Myanmar only in mid-January and expressed friendship with Min Aung, the Burmese military chief who staged the coup, Indian media WION has pointed out that the Chinese Communist Party, a permanent member of the UN Security Council, was behind the coup.
