Moscow, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 21st Jun, 2021 ) :Myanmar's junta leader and a senior Russia security official on Monday committed to improving ties between their two countries, Russia's Security Council said in a statement.
Russia's Security Council said its chief Nikolai Patrushev had met with Min Aung Hlaing and discussed the "fight against terrorism, issues related to regional security" and foreign interference in Myanmar.
This is Min Aung Hlaing's second known trip abroad since he seized power.
The junta's brutal crackdown on dissent has since killed at least 870 civilians since the February coup, according to a local monitoring group.
The resolution -- which did not go so far as to call for a global arms embargo -- also demands that the military "immediately stop all violence against peaceful demonstrators." It was approved by 119 countries, with 36 abstaining including China, Myanmar's main ally, and Russia. Only one country, Belarus, voted against it.
