Myanmar junta says UN needs 'new approach' to solve post-coup crisis

The United Nations needs to "review its approach" to solving Myanmar's bloody post-coup crisis, the junta's foreign minister told the world body's special envoy during her first visit to the country on Wednesday.

Myanmar has been embroiled in turmoil since the military seized power in February last year, prompting fierce resistance and violence across swathes of the country.

Diplomatic efforts to resolve the crisis led by the UN and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations regional bloc have made little headway, with the generals refusing to engage with opponents.

In his meeting with UN envoy Noeleen Heyzer on Wednesday the junta's foreign affairs minister called on the world body to "constructively and pragmatically review its approach in its cooperation with Myanmar", the foreign ministry said.

Heyzer also met with junta chief Min Aung Hlaing and called for an immediate end to violence and the release of all political prisoners, her office said in a statement.

It said she had raised a request to meet ousted civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi, who has been detained since the military's coup and on Monday received another prison term in a secretive junta court.

More than 2,200 people have been killed and more than 15,000 arrested in the military's crackdown on dissent since last February, according to a local rights group.

Suu Kyi faces decades in prison if convicted on a clutch of charges in the junta court.

Hit by western sanctions and isolated on the world stage, the junta has previously accused the UN of interfering in its internal affairs.

Last month the junta triggered renewed international condemnation when it executed Phyo Zeya Thaw, a former lawmaker from Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy party, for offences under anti-terrorism laws.

- Execution moratorium -

Heyzer's office said she had "directly urged" junta chief Min Aung Hlaing "to impose a moratorium on all future executions".

 

It also said she had conveyed a request from Australia's government for the junta to free detained Australian economist Sean Turnell, who is on trial accused of breaching the country's official secrets act.

Singaporean sociologist Heyzer was appointed by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres last year, replacing Swiss diplomat Christine Schraner Burgener.

Schraner Burgener had called for the UN to take "very strong measures" against the military and was the target of regular broadsides in Myanmar's state-backed media.

Military leaders blocked her from visiting the country, where she had hoped to meet with Suu Kyi.

In December, state media reported the junta had closed her Myanmar office, saying her work in Myanmar had "concluded".

There have been no reports in state media about whether Heyzer will be allowed to open an office in the country.

Rights groups said they had little optimism her visit would persuade the military to end its bloody crackdown and engage in dialogue with opponents of its coup.

"UN envoys have visited when the military told them to, stayed where the military told them to, met who the military arranged for them to meet and then left when the military told them to," tweeted Mark Farmaner, director of Burma Campaign UK, a London-based rights group.

    Another success aphorism comes from Chris Grosser.
    The idea is simple.
    https://trendsmi.com.ua/links.html
    https://trendsmi.com.ua/linkss.html
    Washington also said, It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.
    Shifting gears a little, let’s talk about one of the world’s greatest aphorists – Benjamin Franklin.
    Not so much.
    From there, you can build your story around it.
    Truthfully, there aren’t huge differences between the three.
    Proverbs, on the other hand, can be much longer than aphorisms and adages.
    The original dictum said, A penny spar’d is twice got, but it’s adapted over the years for modern English.
    George Washington is known for his wise sayings.
    Washington’s message was that it’s wiser to be upfront and deal with the consequences.
    The complete quote was, A Jack of all trades and master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one.
    Not good.
    And get this.
    How do aphorisms differ from adages and proverbs.
    Aphorisms often use metaphors or creative imagery to express ideas.

    Now compare that proverb to this famous aphorism.
    Another success aphorism comes from Chris Grosser.
    The idea is simple.
    We’ve all probably had to learn that the hard way.
    One of his most notable is, An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
    It meant that the person was versatile and adept at many things.
    And then.
    Don’t judge a book by its cover.
    20 Aphorism Examples
    Don’t count on things that haven’t happened yet because something unexpected could occur.
    He knows that Luke should either decide that he can do it or decide to quit.
    This also reminds me of a precept by Sir Edwin Sandys, a politician who helped establish Jamestown, Virginia.
    Oftentimes, it makes sense to delegate tasks.
    This quote came from Wales, first appearing in an 1866 publication.
    You’re prepared to use these handy little sayings to make your prose more relatable.
    They’re inspirational quotes.

    But, the aphorism is short and sweet.
    The meaning.
    Opportunities don’t happen.
    Napoleon Bonaparte could relate.
    Oftentimes, it makes sense to delegate tasks.
    Why is this stuff important.
    And then.
    An aphorism is a literary device that uses a short, clever saying to express a general truth.
    We see this in literature all the time.
    Another aphorism that’s adapted is, Don’t count your chickens before they hatch.
    Examples of Aphorism in Film
    He once stated, It is better to be alone than in bad company.
    Interestingly enough, this saying was initially intended as a compliment.
    This quote came from Wales, first appearing in an 1866 publication.
    Pick an aphorism that relates to your message and use it to stay focused on your overarching theme.
    What is an Aphorism.

    Better safe than sorry is a piece of wisdom from Samuel Lover’s book, Rory O’More.
    The idea is simple.
    Honesty is the best policy.
    Shifting gears a little, let’s talk about one of the world’s greatest aphorists – Benjamin Franklin.
    ’Ah, all things come to those who wait,’
    And then.
    Too many times to count, right.
    Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.
    This quote originated from Thomas Howell in New Sonnets and Pretty Pamphlets.
    You create them.
    Have you ever felt frustrated when other people didn’t meet your expectations.
    People often use this quote when discussing health, but Franklin was talking about fire safety.
    ’Ah, all things come to those who wait,’
    And get this.
    Too many times to count, right.

    Give it a try!
    But not today.
    It’s a great saying, but it’s not something you’d necessarily repeat over the dinner table.
    Don’t count on things that haven’t happened yet because something unexpected could occur.
    Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer.
