Liz Truss – 2021 Statement on Aung San Suu Kyi

The statement made by Liz Truss, the Foreign Secretary, on 6 December 2021.

The sentencing of Aung San Suu Kyi is another appalling attempt by Myanmar’s military regime to stifle opposition and suppress freedom and democracy.

The United Kingdom calls on the regime to release political prisoners, engage in dialogue and allow a return to democracy. The arbitrary detention of elected politicians only risks further unrest.
