The United States is imposing further sanctions against the military government and its environment in Myanmar. U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blingen announced Friday that five people and five companies have been affected. The reason given was that sanctions were a reaction to the regime’s brutal actions against the people. “Since the military coup of February 2021, the military regime has intensified its repression, killing more than 1,700 people, including women, children and aid workers.” According to US figures, Blinken recalled the military’s violent crackdown on protesters at the Army’s Official Remembrance Day nearly a year ago.

Blingen said the U.S. government has now allowed a total of 70 people and 27 companies to support the military government. Plinken formally classified the atrocities against the Rohingya Muslim minority in Myanmar as genocide. He concluded that members of the military in Myanmar had “committed genocide and crimes against humanity against the Rohingya.”
