Don’t recognize Myanmar junta, top U.N. official tells world body

NEW YORK (Reuters) – No country should recognize or legitimize the Myanmar junta that seized power in a coup and all efforts must be made to restore democracy, the United Nations special envoy on Myanmar told the 193-member General Assembly on Friday.

Christine Schraner Burgener pushed the world body for a collective “clear signal in support of democracy” as she sounded the alarm over the Feb. 1 coup.
