West condemns Myanmar coup but Thailand, Cambodia shrug

The United Nations led condemnation of Myanmar’s military on Monday after it seized power, calling for the release of elected leaders, including Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said the developments were a “serious blow to democratic reforms” and urged all leaders to refrain from violence and respect human rights, a UN spokesman said.

The United States, Australia and Singapore expressed dismay at the military’s declaration of a state of emergency and the detentions, which the army said it had carried out in response to “election fraud”.
