Washington has given its backing to opposition forces in Myanmar

Following a virtual meeting with representatives from the Myanmar’s shadow government on Monday, the U.S.A. National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan, reiterated the US government’s support for the “pro-democracy movement” in Myanmar, whole condemning “the military’s brutal violence.”

Mr Sullivan also said that the US would press for the release of Kyaw Min Yu, who shot to prominence during the 1988 student uprising, and got detained in an overnight raid last Sunday.

Critics have poured scorn on US concerns over democracy in Myanmar, with a number of NGOs and media organisations in the country bankrolled by the controversial United States non-governmental organisation National Endowment for Democracy (NED). They fear that the US is seeking to impose a Washington-friendly regime to block China’s Belt and Road Initiative and a gas pipeline which passes through Myanmar.
