UN expert urges Security Council resolution to stop weapons fueling spike in military attacks on civilians

This report by the UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of Human Rights in Myanmar, Tom Andrews, identifies States, including two permanent members of the Security Council, who have supplied weapons used against civilians since Myanmar’s military coup.

He calls on weapons exporting nations to immediately suspend their weapons sales and for an emergency Security Council session to debate and vote on a resolution to, at minimum, ban those arms transfers that the Myanmar military are known to use to attack and kill Myanmar civilians.
