The deteriorating situation in Myanmar continues to attract the attention of the United Nations. The United Nations warned that Myanmar's increasingly fierce internal conflict, crown disease epidemic, and declining economy have caused about 3 million local people to urgently need humanitarian assistance to maintain their basic living needs.
According to the United Nations official website, the UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs Griffiths issued a statement on Monday, saying: "The humanitarian situation in Myanmar continues to deteriorate. If the violence is not ended and the crisis in Myanmar is not resolved peacefully, the number of people (in need of assistance) will only increase day by day. "Griffiths is also the emergency relief coordinator of the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.
According to the report released by the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs at the end of September this year, of the approximately 3 million people in urgent need of assistance in Myanmar, more than 2 million people were in trouble after the military launched a coup to overthrow the democratically elected government on February 1st this year.
The coup d' é tat also caused more than 220,000 people to be displaced due to armed conflict and unrest. The most serious situations include Kachin, Shan, Chin, Kaye, and Karen, as well as some towns in central Sagaing and Magway provinces.
The United Nations Security Council also held a closed-door meeting on Monday to discuss the situation in Myanmar. The meeting was held on Monday. If there were no military coup, the NLD government led by Aung San Suu Kyi won the general election in November last year and came to power on Monday just one year ago.
In addition, Richardson, a former US ambassador to the United Nations and governor of New Mexico, met with military leader Min Anglia in Myanmar last week. Rights organizations criticized Richardson and Min Anglia for meeting and taking photos, but Richardson thought it was "worth it". Richardson was interviewed by AFP after returning to the United States, saying that his trip was at the invitation of Myanmar's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the purpose was to explore how to send more coronavirus vaccines to Myanmar.
Richardson went to Myanmar on a "private humanitarian mission" last Sunday and later announced that Myanmar's military agreed to release an employee of Richardson Center.
Richardson Center, established by Richardson, has long been involved in Myanmar and feminist affairs. According to the Center's official website, Richardson is also an expert in hostage negotiation. "He participated in the negotiations of American hostages and the release of American troops in North Korea, Cuba, Iraq, and Sudan."
